    • Synopsis
    • The nine-year-old Nikolas has been missing for days. The criminal psychologist Claudia Meinert (Martina Gedeck) notices contradictions in her conversation with the parents of the missing child. In particular Nikolas' mother (Beate Maes) appears to be hiding something. When a video of the missing Niklas surfaces, showing him tied up in a cellar, the trail leads to his school. The thirteen-year-old Leon (Markus Krojer) and Mathilda strike the psychologist as conspicuous and provocative. Shortly afterwards, Meinert encounters the children with Niklas' parents in the swimming baths, and her suspicions are confirmed: the parents are entangled in an insidious father-mother-child game with the possible suspects Leon and Mathilda.
