A Vigilante Justice

AIRES DECEMBER 7TH 2020 ON ZDF

Nothing seems to be out of the ordinary, after the popular 19-year-old Tim Jatzkowski doesn't return home from a night out. But when his father, luxury car dealer Frank Jatzkowski, receives a ransom demand, circumstances change dramatically.

In an effort to find Tim, the experienced inspector, Martin Brühl, gets involved. To his surprise, he encounters a distraught mother and an unconcerned Jatzkowski, who is reluctant to pay the ransom. Brühl, now suspicious, investigates Jatzkowskis business ventures and discovers that the latter has connercial ties to Berlins underworld.

Along the investigation, Brühl acquaints himself with the wine merchant Oliver Froehling, who knows more than his unsuspecting persona might reveal.

A cat-and-mouse-game between the police, Jatzkowski, Froehling and the notorious Berlin underworld begins. A game that is grounded in a past tragedy - an illegal street race with catastrophic outcome.
