The body of a dead child is found at the playground in Büsum – a town near the German North Sea. The child is a small boy, a Syrian refugee. The police is working hard to find the murderer, but without success. At the same time suspended detective David Menger faces an internal investigation. His colleague Nina Schwarz wants him drag back to Berlin, but before they can return they are drawn into the investigation of the case.
Later in Berlin Nina Schwarz heads a case in which the victim was from Romania. Both cases resemble each other clearly and just a few days later another refugee child vanishes. Time runs out while the detectives try to prevent another tragedy.
