During an autopsy, forensic scientist Paul Herzfeld (Moritz Bleibtreu) finds a note with his daughter Hannah’s mobile number in the head of the body. Hannah has been kidnapped, and the kidnapper sends Herzfeld on an insane hunt from reference to reference, from corpse to corpse. As the leads point to Helgoland, Herzfeld asks the young comic artist Linda (Jasna Fritzi Bauer) for help, since the island has been cut off from the outside world by a storm. In the abandoned island clinic, Linda confronts herself with the perfidious game of the killer and is supported by caretaker Ender (Fahri Yardım). The killer always seems to be one step ahead of her – and also keeps Herzfeld busy on the mainland. The two get entangled deeper and deeper in the kidnapper’s net. And in the fight for Hannah’s life they run out of time ...
