When she sees the defendant Robin Böhme (Simon Licht) for the first time, prosecutor Esther Dorwald (Ann-Kathrin Kramer) collapses in shock. She recognizes him as the man who sexually assaulted her in a park twenty years ago. At the time, the investigation fizzled out, but now he is here, a businessman accused of arms trafficking and murder. The prosecutor wants him to be held accountable for his crime against her, but realizes that the act is time-barred. The current case against him also threatens to fall apart. Desperate, Esther pulls out all the stops, risking her relationship with her husband Lukas (Klaus J. Behrendt) and taking illegal measures to ensure Robin Böhme does not walk away for a second time.
