His newly hired assistant, Sandra Wellmann, is one of these enemies. She has been planted in the agency by the RAF terrorist organization to spy on Dahlmann. When the head of a bank is murdered, the Federal Criminal Police Office starts to consider who might be next. As Wellmann and Dahlmann come to trust each other, the terrorist's mission is redefined.
