The Aachen police receive an anonymous tip-off that a little girl has disappeared. Starting their investigations, Detectives Seifert and Menkhoff get a surprise: the father of the allegedly vanished child is Dr. Joachim Lichner, a psychiatrist whom they arrested 14 years previously for the murder of a four-year-old girl. In a spectacular trial, he was convicted to a long prison sentence on circumstantial evidence. When the detectives confront him with their new suspicions, Dr. Lichner denies even having a child. He says he is innocent, just like the last time. Does someone want to put him behind bars a second time round – for a crime he did not commit? Why is Detective Menkhoff so determined to prove that Lichner has committed another crime so many years later? And why does the psychiatrist end up giving more and more contradictory statements in every interrogation when it comes to the subject of his former girlfriend? An embittered psychological duel takes its terrible course…
