When a young lawyer takes on a spectacular murder case, he discovers that he knew the victim. While his client, the seventy year-old Fabrizio Collini, keeps silent, the lawyer becomes more and more involved in the case until he discovers one of the largest legal scandals in German history.

For over 30 years, Fabrizio Collini has worked diligently for a German carmaker before going and killing a man, seemingly on a whim. It's a nightmare for lawyer Caspar Leinen, who takes over his case as a court-assigned lawyer: the victim was Leinen's long-time friend, he has a client who won't talk to him, and an opponent who seems far superior. When he decides to tackle the case anyway, he starts uncovering one of the greatest legal scandals ever, stretching back to World War II. But how much is he willing to sacrifice to expose the truth?
