There is great concern in Klein-Beken: 17-year-old Lara (Antonia Lingemann) has disappeared. Her destroyed scooter is found abandoned in the cornfield, but there is no trace of the girl. Did she run away or was she kidnapped? Is she even still alive? Max (Aurel Manthei) has his hands full. The whole village is involved in the search, and yet Lara remains untraceable. Gradually, the mood turns, because all the villagers know: If something had happened to the girl, it was the fault of someone in their midst. When Lara reappears out of nowhere, Britta (Anna Schudt) and Max suspect that this is by no means the end of the investigation. Britta’s instinct finally leads her on the right track. But she doesn’t have much time to prevent a catastrophe.
Anna Schudt, as cook and amateur detective Britta Janssen, is once again on the trail of crime in the countryside, and in doing so, she strongly interferes with her brother Max (Aurel Manthei), the local police commissioner.
In addition to Michael Roll and Tobias Diakow, the cast includes Valerie Niehaus, Christina Grosse, Isabel Bongard, Stephan Luca and Sebastian Bezzel. The film is again directed by Marcus Weiler from a script by Jörg von Schlebrügge and Mika Kallwass.
