Post Covid-19 pandemic, economic strife hits home for Elias who's still haunted by government corruption that stripped his family of everything they owned in the 90s. Elias holds 4 journalists hostage demanding they expose the truth.
Elias releases one of the journalist hostages so that she can search for evidence proving that Elias' bank committed a crime in the 90s. Meanwhile, hostage negotiator, Jarmo, prepares for what appears to be a lengthy hostage situation.

The motive for the hostage situation spreads in the media. Meanwhile, Elias' accomplice, Lauri, makes a break in the case by hacking his way into a wealth of evidence. The hostages begin to sympathize with Elias.
