With the European Union removing all internal borders, new challenges have arisen for police stationed in cities close to other nations. The special task force of police officers from German town Kehl and their colleagues from the French city of Strasbourg is equipped to deal with crime in the border region across national jurisdictions, but faces its first real test, when young officer Leni Herold gets caught in the crosshairs of two brutal bank robbers. Her father Steffen Herold, lead investigator of the task force, has to make a split-second decision whether to risk his daughter’s life in a violent confrontation or let the criminals and their hostage go. Finding Leni across the border in France becomes the task force’s prime objective, as the freshly minted police officer realizes that the hostage situation is volatile and that her own actions while in captivity need to be farless “by the book” than she imagined.
