Scene from "First Case Worst Case" (photo © Heiko Rahnenfuehrer)

Ransom: three million! Four teens have a sure-fire plan: They are going to kidnap themselves and sail to a lonely island to obtain their parents’ money from a courier. On this isle, Ludger controls law and order. But as he has nothing to do out there, his old rival Mayor Knut wants to fire him. So Ludger creates his own case – which clashes with the kidnapping. When the first body washes ashore, things have to be taken bloody seriously...
