After a night spent drinking, Inspector Steier (Joachim Król) wakes up on a park bench. Shortly afterwards, a jogger is stabbed to death before his very eyes. Steier is able to briefly catch hold of the female perpetrator, but then she escapes. At the station, too, there is bad news: Steier's boss gives him a new partner, a brash aspiring female inspector, while at the same time taking him off the jogger case as he's a witness. But that doesn't stop Steier investigating... In his penultimate role as the Tatort inspector from Frankfurt, Joachim Król stumbles through a case packed with surprising and/or absurd twists, which he masters in his characteristically somnambulistic manner.
