A young woman is found raped and strangled. Her father cannot come to terms with her death - and even less with the fact that the perpetrator is never identified, despite massive leads. For half a lifetime he does not give up the search, tracing and investigating. For half a lifetime, however, the murderer, now a family man, always lives with the fear of being convicted of his crime. A good twenty years after the murder, when DNA analysis begins to gain a foothold in forensic medicine, the cards are reshuffled.

"A gripping drama that is convincing not least because of the strong cast, even in the supporting roles." FOCUS FILM
