    • Synopsis
    • “Welfare worker Hans-Peter Stalder possesses the secret code to happiness: a money-multiplying strategy which promises incredible wealth to its hand-picked investors and a subsequent life of leisure and luxury. There’s only one downside to his story: it’s entirely made up of lies and the only one who really benefits from it is Stalder himself.
      For thirteen years the notorious conman and womanizer fools his guileless victims and tricks the authorities, embezzling millions and taking women’s hearts by storm. But when a stupid mistake trips him up, the time has come for confession – big-time confession.
      With each revelation of intimate detail, an increasingly colourful figure emerges. From the behind the mask of respected citizen Hans-Peter Stalder a whole slew of characters step out: the unscrupulous swindler, the love-hungry ladykiller, the remorseful family man... Nothing is what it seems. But everything is true. Almost everything.”
