The day, which was supposed to end with a leisurely movie night on the terrace, becomes the day on which a real hell ride begins for Max Broll (Laurence Rupp). It begins with a cell phone that suddenly lies in Max's room. One of those numbers connects him to a socket in a box buried deep in the ground somewhere. His stepmother Tilda (Bettina Redlich) is trapped in it. Everything is dark around her, she has no idea where she is, next to her only two bottles of juice and a mobile phone - her only connection to the outside world, to the police and to her stepson, the undertaker Max Broll. He goes on a search with his best friend Baroni (Jürgen Vogel).

It gets quieter on Sylt between the fourth Advent and Christmas Eve. But not for everyone: the owner of the traditional company Betten Reuter lies dead next to the open wall safe. His wife Regina (Johanna Gastdorf) and his daughter Freya (Lena Dörrie) testify that they were attacked by two disguised Santa Clauses. One of them shot Reuter. A piquant case for the Sylt commissioners, because Hinnerk Feldmann (Oliver Wnuk) is secretly in a relationship with Freya.
