Warsaw, June 1942. Aneta, the beautiful wife of a respected lawyer, Karol Holzer, is killed in suspicious circumstances. Rafał Król, an officer of the Blue Police co-operating with the Germans, tries to solve the mysterious murder. Suspicions multiply as one clue after another uncovers the well-hidden secrets of the deceased and disclose unclear connections between her husband and a high-ranked SS officer. Among the suspects there’s also a somewhat eccentric Count Leon Przewidzki, who has a habit of eavesdropping on the visitors to the lawyer’s apartment. During his investigation, Król finds an unexpected ally, Ernst Kluge, a Gestapo commander. Holzer situation becomes increasingly dangerous, while the murderer – still at large – might be ready to strike again.
