(4 x 45 min. / 2 x 90 min.)
On New Year's Day, Thomas Becker (Matthias Koeberlin), son of a powerful real estate developer (Heiner Lauterbach), is shot dead. Inspector Barbara Falck (Sabine Winterfeldt) and colleague Christian Krämer (Wolf Danny Homann) suspect a connection with the mysterious collapse of their almost finished housing project "House Cube", in which a young cleaner was killed. Was the murder of Thomas an act of revenge against the company Becker & Sons? Or was it a family member? The detectives soon discover deep cracks in the seemingly perfect facade of the Becker family:
The murder victim sought help at the AA, where he fell in love with the mysterious Karoline (Petra Schmidt-Schaller). His half-brother Eric (Lucas Gregorowicz), who was in charge of the collapsed multi-million construction project, was always jealous of Thomas and courted his father's favor. And the patriarch himself is not afraid to sacrifice one of his sons to save his struggling company from ruin.
