While looking for his missing daughter, Lothar discovers that more and more kids and teenagers have started to mysteriously disappear.

14-year-old Martha disappears from one day to the next. Her father Lothar hasn't been in contact with either his daughter or his ex-wife for years. He soon realizes other young people are also vanishing from the city inexplicably. Lothar follows their trail across the country but makes no headway until he meets 12-year-old Lou. They continue on their journey and encounter militia groups and a reinforced police presence. Slowly, Lothar begins to realize that the world as he knew it has changed.
