LAST COP STANDING - THE WITNESS

In St. Andreasberg in the Harz Mountains, life has a more leisurely pace. It's even a change of pace for village constable Frank Koops when a stolen bicycle shows up that's been missing for years, or he misses the bulls' eye by an inch at target practice. But then the mob suddenly shows up in town, along with crooked feds, raiding the hideout of an important witness in the protection program here. His former flame Christiane "Snuggles" Kuschnereit, who is in charge of the witness's security, tells Koops the target is hidden somewhere else. Now it's up to Koops to escort the young woman to her court date safely…
