Loosely based on the novel by bestselling author Michael Robotham
Psychiatrist and inspector: Ulrich Noethen and Juergen Maurer investigate together for the fourth time
Psychiatrist Joe Jessen (Ulrich Noethen) is called to an emergency by Inspector Vincent Ruiz (Juergen Maurer) and Anna Bartholomé (Marie Leuenberger): a woman is standing on a bridge, a cell phone to her ear. She appears to be remote-controlled and jumps to her death.
Joe Jessen could not save the woman. Her daughter Jenny (Ava Schäfer) does not believe in the suicide of her mother Carina Winter – in contrast to chief inspector Ronnie Nielsen (Michaela Rosen), for whom the facts are clear. Was the woman driven to suicide by her caller? Joe gets the investigation to continue.
The trail initially leads to former Afghanistan soldier Patrick Friesner (Paul Herwig), who suffers from severe post-traumatic stress disorder, and his former comrade Gedeon Tauber (Ronald Zehrfeld). But the suspicion is not substantiated. When Silvia Fuchs (Tanja Schleiff), the victim’s best friend, is also found dead under strange circumstances, psychiatrist Joe Jessen understands that an expert in human manipulation must be at work here. Together with Ruiz, he tries to track down the “soul breaker”. Joe has no idea that he himself has already been targeted by the killer … A race against time begins.
