When presenter Milla (Katrin Bauerfeind) announces the “Ab-in-die-Wüste-Schlussmacherwoche” on Radio Seven FM with the motto “Call and dump your unloved partner!”, pizza messenger Mufti Korkmaz (Arnel Taci) doesn’t think twice. The best thing is for Milla to give his girlfriend Sharronda (Alina Levshin) the boot right away live on her show. Radio boss Simon (Hans-Jochen Wagner) is thrilled – that will bring in ratings. No one expected that this would blow a fuse in Mufti’s ex. She uses the arsenal of weapons of her brothers Dexter (Tristan Seith) and Gordon (Edin Hasanovic) and first takes her flower shop manager Wilma (Chiara Schoras) hostage. What exactly she wants from Wilma is not yet clear to her herself.
Lisa Brenner (Barbara Auer) and Erichsen (Armin Rohde) are on the scene, while Mimi Hu (Minh-Khai Phan-Thi) and Yannick Kruse (Christoph Letkowski) go to Sharronda’s well-known Nazi brothers. Although Sharronda reconciles with Mufti on the phone, Dexter and Gordon still want to pick a bone with him. However, a stranger beats them to it and shoots Mufti in the street. Completely shocked, the brothers follow the heels of the perpetrator. The fast-paced chase through the hot Hamburg night is accompanied live by Radio Seven FM. Suddenly, events come to a head.
