Vienna, 1920. After the collapse of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Peter Perg, a soldier of the Great War, returns from captivity. Everything has changed in his city, where unemployment and nationalist impulses are growing every day. He feels like a stranger at home. Suddenly, several veterans are brutally murdered. Peter Perg is deeply affected by these crimes and joins forces with Theresa Korner, a medical examiner, to investigate. As he discovers more and more, Peter becomes embroiled in the events and must face crucial choices in a crossroads that looks like an expressionist thriller.
