A man takes the law into his own hands: Sven Taddicken's new film is a sensitive, yet tense  revenge drama. Malte (Maximilian Brückner) and Liv Blendermann (Luise Heyer) are spending their summer holiday on an island in the Mediterranean when it turns into a nightmare: Liv is raped by three unknown youths. Two years later, the couple are demonstrating astonishing strength of mind in dealing with this traumatic experience. They decide to stick with their relationship, even if it takes a while for the trust and closeness to return. But then one day Malte spots one of the perpetrators. Driven by the desire for revenge and justice, he follows him – without telling Liv or the police.
