The serial murder case brings Detective Roland Voit to his hometown to work with Polish police officer Stanislaw Zajak. Voit’s former colleague and childhood sweetheart, Maggie Kring, is also called in to join the police investigation when her family comes under immediate suspicion. Reluctantly, the ex-policewoman returns to the scene of events after leaving her hometown 20 years ago. In their investigation, Maggie and Voit delve deep into their own past to finally uncover the true circumstances about the death of Maggie’s brother and the sinister truth of this case, which lies beyond human imagination.
