Fabian Groys is a renowned journalist in the editorial department of a political news magazine. Together with Nadja, a new intern under his charge, he researches a politically charged story about the dubious government policies concerning the disabled in the army. When the story breaks off because one of his informants jumps ship, Groys moves on to a toxic waste scandal. When the signs proliferate that the two stories are somehow connected, the whole thing accelerates. But something sparks Groys’ suspicion: can he really trust his information?
