Ludwigshafen: Sophie Fettèr (Marie-Louise Mott), the founder and heart and soul of dialect theatre company Babbeldasch, dies of an allergenic shock during a performance. Johanna Stern (Lisa Bitter) has to find out if Sophie was murdered, while her colleague Odenthal (Ulrike Folkerts) has to take time off because of all the overtime she's racked up. But Lena was at the performance in question and incognito has a look behind the scenes of the theatre. In so doing she finds herself increasingly in a kind of limbo between investigation, theatre and dream-like state. For the first time on a Tatort, scenes were shot consisting largely of improvisation.
