In the fall of 1992, police inspectors Patrick and Markus are sent off to a remote corner of the country to examine the disappearance of two teen sisters, 15 and 16. Did the two pretty girls just run away from their hick town, or did something more sinister happen to them? In this remote part of the country, the effects of the East German regime still muddy the waters. No one saw anything, the inspectors are greeted by iron silence. When the detectives start to unravel the mystery, they soon wind up in danger themselves...

A nail-biting, edge-of-your-seat thriller about two very different cops investigating a crime and running into a wall of silence and suspicion. Densely staged by genre expert Christian Alvart (Cut Off, Don’t. Get. Out!, Antibodies) and starring Trystan Pütter (Toni Erdmann, Transit), Felix Kramer (Dark, Dogs of Berlin) and Nora Waldstätten (Personal Shopper).
