The first German production from the world's leading Internet TV Network is set in a German town in present day where the disappearance of two young children exposes the double lives and fractured relationships among four families. In ten hour-long episodes, the story takes on a surprising twist that ties back to the same town in 1986.

The tattoo on Noah's back, and in a picture in the 1986 version of the local hospital, is of The Emerald Tablet, an ancient text part of whats known as "Hermetica", a collection of occultist 2nd Century Greco-Egyptian "wisdom texts". It describes, among other things, alchemy experiments, transmutation, and the creation of the universe. But more importantly it discusses the idea that both large and small actions are all connected and influence each other, which is a central theme of the series. Also, conspiracy theorists claim, since according to some people, the text is much older than the language it contains, that it might be from somewhere unknown, some claim aliens, some claim time-travel.
