The assignment came in an anonymous phone call: ex-special investigator and  private detective Georg Dengler (Ronald Zehrfeld) is tasked with finding out if the two NSU terrorists Uwe Mundlos and Uwe Böhnhardt really did kill themselves. What is his client's motive? Without the help of hacker activist Olga Illiescu (Birgit Minichmayr) who has gone to ground in Amsterdam, Dengler can't make any progress. He needs the NSU files from the server of the BKA , the Federal Police Office. Dengler and Olga reconstruct the events and come across unbelievable investigative mistakes and entanglements between police, the Office of State Protection and the BKA. A thriller based on true facts which is more exciting than any fictitious account.
