Bella Block, one of Germany's longest-serving female TV detectives, takes her leave with two episodes. When her car breaks down in a small Eastern German town, Bella gets to know the mechanic Jens Johannsen (Henrik Birch). With his twin brother, many years ago he'd come to the German provinces from Denmark on account of a woman.  His brother has recently died of a heart attack, but Jens doubts that this was the real cause of death and asks Bella to help. Her investigations lead to the local red light district.
