Since 1997 the international discounter chain "Aldi" is selling personal computers with its weekly changing special offers. The PCs labelled with the "Lifetec" trademark were greatly demanded by the customers in the beginning. Often people came 2 hours before the shop opened to be sure to get one.

The film documents this kind of weird situation, the fight for the last computer and a disappointing finale in the jazzed up documentary style developed by Alexander and Edgar.
