Vienna. A mafia clan decides to adapt an old-school communication tool to convey confidential information. The supposedly superb idea is to send encoded postcards so that the people involved have to get their hands dirty. Late at night all cards are hidden in public dustbins, where - in the middle of fast-food leftovers and free newspapers - they discretely wait for their recipient. While the mafia bosses are rubbing their manicured hands sure of victory, an unnoticed mischief-maker disrupts their plans. By unintentionally dispersing the valuable postcards on a regular basis a tramp starts driving the mafiosi insane after a short time. The bosses suspect having a mole within themselves. Because who else other than their own messenger could be responsible for the failure of their plan?

Postcard-Mafia tells the grotesque story of a group of people, who is obsessed with a brilliant idea. Deeply convinced that their system could never fail, they blame “humankind” for the mistakes.
