AGENT ECHO AND THE FIRECARD CONSPIRACY

Klaus dreams of being like Agent Echo, a hero in spy novels. But as an assistant to cunning Firecard executive Jens Baldweg, he doesn’t get to have much say in anything. Then Agent Storm shows up in search of the evidence of a billion-dollar accounting fraud that would put an end to Baldweg’s machinations. In the process, he mistakes Klaus for his idol, Echo. This story with satirist Michael Altinger was not very freely adapted from real events.



  • Duration: 19 min.
