Special highlight: the company has hired two over-the-hill actors to kidnap the consultants with unloaded weapons, keep them hostage, and to demand a high ransom from the company. A realistic role play with fun factor! But things don‘t go according to plan: the actors find the make-believe scenario so convincing that they decide to put the plan into action for real, using real weapons!
