She is so focused on her project that she completely overlooks her partner, policeman Tom, and his fascinating secret. Evil enters and forever changes the life of a hermit, happily living in harmony with nature. Inga and Georg are aging show-offs, first snobbish, then lucid, and ultimately vulnerable. During a school trip to the memorial site of a concentration camp, popular student Maximilian humiliates outsiders Dominik and Natalie and sets up a cruel trap for his teacher, Mr. Nickel...
