Rich sawmill owner Reinhard Lorenz (Otto Mellies) has two daughters: the older Manuela (Maja Maranow) leads the family business and has always lived with her son at home. The younger Katrin (Katharina Böhm), ​​on the other hand, turned her back on her homeland 18 years ago to start a new life in the USA. For the father's 80th birthday, however, Katrin returns and takes up residence in an old hunting lodge in the mountains. This arouses the suspicions of Manuela and her partner Jens (Max Herbrechter). They fear that Katrin has returned to ensure her inheritance. When Katrin survives a fall into a ravine, Detective Westphal (Martin Feifel) takes on the investigation - for Katrin is convinced that someone pushed her into the ravine. Christian (Thomas Sarbacher), the father of Manuela's son, who was once also Katrin's great love, had a motive. He is suspected of leading a vendetta against the Lorenz family, who had once banished him for defrauding the company and the family. But then Christian is found shot dead...
