In the middle of the night, Jenny Berlin picks up an eight-year-old boy who seems to be silently guarding a dark secret: neither does he want to say what his name is, nor where he lives. When his mother is found murdered shortly thereafter and the boy flees, Jenny and her colleagues harbor a terrible suspicion: Is the boy perhaps to blame for his mother’s death, or does he know the murderer?
In her twelfth case, Hamburg detective Jenny Berlin – played by audience favorite Aglaia Szyszkowitz – once again investigates together with her colleagues Wolfer (Hannes Hellmann) and Brehm (Rainer Strecker) with humanity, wit and professionalism. The series already owes two very successful films to the author duo Stefan Cantz and Jan Hinter, who wrote the screenplay. Directed by crime specialist Buddy Giovinazzo (“Tatort”, “Wilsberg”), this is a gripping story about the hardships and survival strategies of a neglected latchkey kid who learned early on that life can sometimes be very dangerousâ€¦.
