On New Year’s Day, a woman’s body is found on the edge of a school playground. Conny Mey (Nina Kunzendorf) and Frank Steier (Joachim Król) soon identify the body: Agnes Brendel was well-known in her neighbourhood, going on her own from pub to pub without any money and, despite being in a steady relationship, having constantly changing male acquaintances. The inspectors question the pub landlord, the regulars and the young pastor Pater Markus (Florian Lukas) whose church Conny often visited. The various statements they collect, however, don’t match.
