After the violent death of her brother, Maren’s (Maria Simon) life is turned on its head. The police’s unenthusiastic investigations cause her to try and find the murderer herself. In doing so, she soon finds herself on the trail of what seems to be an internationally active gang of radioactive waste crooks. To her horror, she finds out that her husband Mehdi (Carlo Ljubek) also seems to be involved. Maren increasingly feels she’s being watched and confides in her friend (Jasmin Gerat). Are Maren and her family really in danger or is Maren herself in fact the threat?


Kai Wessel (*1961) in Hamburg. Numerous in part award-winning films for TV and cinema including Martha Jellnek (1988), Klemperer – Ein Leben in Deutschland (1999), Die Flucht (2006).
