The mysterious murder of a young woman throws a small village near Schleswig into turmoil. Before Sarah died in agony in her remote house, she had been raped. Tragically, had Notartz been called just a short time earlier, Sarah would have had a chance to survive. Schleswig inspector Jana Winter (Natalia Wörner) and her colleagues investigate that there was a similar case years ago. Back then, 20-year-old Selma (Oana Solomon) was brutally raped and barely survived the crime.
The investigated perpetrator, Ulrich Wolf (Robert Gallinowski), has served his sentence, has recently been released and lives with his mother in isolation in the village. For the residents, above all the fanatical Lothar Seidel (Peter Heinrich Brix), it is immediately clear: Ulrich Wolf is a repeat offender – the murderer of Sarah – and must be locked up.
Inspector Arne Brauner (Martin Brambach) finds it difficult to remain objective during Wolf’s interrogation. The crime committed at the time had shaken him badly. For days, the police officer had held out at the victim’s bedside until she was able to make statements.
However, Wolf could not be proven guilty of the new crime. Despite massive protests from the residents, the commissioners have to let him go. While the atmosphere in the village heats up, Jana Winter gets closer and closer to the truth and puts herself in deadly danger with her investigation.
In addition to Natalia Wörner, Ralph Herforth, Martin Brambach, Max von Pufendorf, Friederike Linke and Ralph Misske are again in the cast. Other roles are played by Johanna Gastdorf, Peter Heinrich Brix, Tilo Prückner, Martin Wissner, Veit Krüger and others.
The book was written by Zora Holt, who made her debut as a screenwriter with “Unter anderen Umständen – Mord im Watt”. The director was Judith Kennel. Unter anderen Umständen” is produced by Network Movie Hamburg, Jutta Lieck-Klenke and Dietrich Kluge. Daniel Blum is the editor at ZDF.
