A village near Bremen: a marching band plays as the police bid their colleague farewell. Inspector Hagen Dudek (Michael Mendl) is retiring. He has three days
of service left, and his successor Klaus Wendt (Frank Giering) would love to solve the current case by himself. The corpse of a missing person is found cemented into a wall. 16 years ago, the man had been suspected of abducting and killing a little boy. A hair-raising village crime story.
