If Tarantino were Friesian, this is the film he would have made: policeman Helge (Hinnerk Schönemann) lives a quiet life on the North Sea island of Amrum. Until a Federal Crime Police (BKA) officer appears in his police station, covered in blood. She is accompanied by a young Russian woman, Mathilda (Irina Potapenko), a witness in a murder case and under police protection. But there’s adouble agent in the BKA… What becomes a professional test for Helge, is a breaking test for the audience’s nerves and laugh muscles.
