Berlin, 1928. A dead man is found in the shed behind the Ascanian High School, which is located right next door to the variete and sensationalist theater, The Cabaret of Evil. Here the theater owner puts his severe facial injuries from the war on shocking display. Shortly before the body is discovered, a distraught young Russian woman is seen at the theater, searching for a man named Fjodor. Does the key to the mystery around the cabaret lie in the Scheune neighborhood, where Russian emigrants live in very cramped conditions? Once again, Leo Wechsler’s investigations introduce him to an array of little-known faces around his city.
