After the party in Karsten's apartment, everybody leaves except Anna. Admiringly, Karsten approaches this mysterious woman. How could he have known that in a moment of weakness, his well-established life would spiral out of control and turn into a disaster? In this small provincial German town, disappointment soon fuels anger, justice hides behind hypocrisy, and evil gradually unfolds.
