Bernd Reuther joins Christian Schubert and Kerstin Klar in the rural Taunus village where farmer's wife Monika Bender was fatally shot with the hunting rifle the family uses in the local shooting competition. The superstitious locals seem to believe in the curse of the 'Taunus witch'. The grumpy husband, farmer Johann, is in a wheelchair since a grave accident and claims to have seen or heard nothing, but was on bad terms with his neighbors. Adult but mentally immature son Andreas 'Andy' is too easily influenced to believe as witness and keeps chancing his story, being terrified he may again be placed in a handicapped home. His sister Brigitte Möllmann, who left the farm for her husband's firm being denied a switch to bio, returns temporarily to settle the affairs, and tried to hide weird financial transactions.
