The caretaker of the building where Christoph’s girlfriend Isabel lives has been murdered. One thing is immediately clear: Isabel and her mother must go into hiding. They are illegal immigrants, and if the police find out they will be deported. It’s just as well Christoph knows of a remote hut deep in the woods where he can hide them for the time being. But then what? Christoph decides to take the investigation into his own hands. However things go badly wrong: not only does he arouse the suspicions of the police, but he also discovers that Isabel would have had a strong motive for killing the man. Can Christoph really trust his girlfriend, when she reveals so little of herself?
A highly topical socio-political thriller.
