In a hospital in Hamburg, an unidentified woman is disconnected from the life-support system. Chief Inspector Johannes Fischer and his team are puzzled as they take up the investigation.

It’s soon discovered that they were once close friends. The investigation leads Johannes Fischer to the small town in Lower Saxony where the two men came from.
