Raulien's District (Rauliens Revier)

Raulien's District

Mrs. Meyer needs a lawyer. Savaz would like to borrow 5 Marks in an unorthodox manner. Ramona didn't come home last night at all. A confused old man is causing trouble on the stairs. And then, of course, there is the thing with the Moroccans. The 16-year old Karem has a secret understanding with Mrs. Illhardt. His 18-year old brother Sayed was the predecessor and is jealous. Abdoul, the oldest brother, should be looking after his brothers, but he can't. Father Belhardi, a practicing muslim, doesn't understand the world anymore. Typical cases for police superintendent Hans Raulien. "Raulien's District": an industrial area, in the Ruhrgebiet, is wedged between the motorway and the August Thyssen Steelworks. Duisburg - Bruckhausen. Unemployment runs at 50% and the foreign population at 65% - impoverishment, alcoholism, abundance of children. But they are trying to cope living all together. Anyway, enough problems are left and they all end up in Raulien's little office.
