PlotEdit

While cycling late night, 19-year-old Vera Kall arrives at a farm. She leaves her bike and sneaks quietly in through a kitchen door. She hadn't had time to realize that she is not alone, when a sudden blow to the head knocks her onto the kitchen floor where she is left lying. Meanwhile, a successful copywriter at Antwerp, Henry, is approached by Paula, a documentarian, with whom, upon talking, revealed that she once studied with Vera. Her task is to make a film about Vera Kall, and she wants Henry's help in writing a script for it, while she will travel to Münster and start filming. At the same time, Vera's father, Jakob, is convicted in her murder and sent to prison. Paula and Henry team up to unravel the truth and why and where Vera's body disappeared, while at the same time try to hide the whereabouts.
