A young nurse has disappeared, chief inspector Doreen Brasch (Claudia Michelsen) quickly suspects the gardener Markus Wegner (Sascha Alexander Geršak). In an interrogation, he actually claims to have killed the woman - and even admits to another murder for which another man has been in prison for several years.
