OT: Was wir verbergen

Fiction Feature // FF2022



On her very first case, a young female police inspector is confronted by her own traumas. Even before her first day at work in the homicide division Hamburg, Inspector Katharina Tempel (Franziska Hartmann) is given an unusual case by her new superior DCI Georg König: The Leitermanns, a married couple, both doctors, have disappeared. The evidence points to a kidnapping. While Hans Leitermann is soon found on the couple’s boat, there is still no trace of his wife. Katharina and her colleagues start investigating and she soon finds that the case affects her private life and reveals a spiritual abyss.
