Judith Lorenz (Ursula Strauss), a new employee at the Health Authority, is brutally raped in a filing room by her colleague Lehmann (Hannes Jaenicke). That is at least what she tells her colleague Andrea Bredow (Valerie Niehaus) with whom she has become quite friendly. Lehmann, whose macho attitude cannot be overlooked, disputes the accusation, but is arrested, convicted and sentenced to 5 years in prison. But the better Andrea gets to know Judith, the more she begins to doubt her friend's credibility. A sophisticated drama, based partly on real events.
