Jakob has disappeared from the face of the earth and is wanted by Inspector Vergas in connection with crimes. The lawyer cannot imagine that her beloved son could be involved in illegal activities. But can Marlene trust the local police? Together with her random acquaintance Alexandros, who offers to be a lawyer, the judge begins to investigate in the Greek metropolis.

In order to find him and help him, the courageous lawyer begins to rely on means that she would have to punish in the courtroom.
