It is the year 1935: After being released from a concentration camp, Arnold remains working for the resistance movement in Hamburg. He has mixed feelings about his new contact agent; he almost envies the man's self-confidence, but cannot help mistrusting him. And this time, when casualties are heavy, only Walter emerges unscathed. Is he an informer?
