FRANKFURT, DECEMBER 17
While having illicit sex in a car with a married man, nurse Irina is witness to a brawl. She wants Carl, the head physician with whom she's having the affair, to intervene, but he decides to look away. In another life: Lennard rescues Sam from the street. He takes her to his residence — an empty office building — and nurses her back to health. She learns to follow his strict rules, which could be covering over the sensitive scars of past experiences. Before Sam can find out, Lennard is beat up. The incident indeed has wider repercussions, all the way up to a well-to-do family.
