For a young couple who have desperately tried to become parents, the loss of their unborn child breaks their hearts, and their marriage. When the preventable cause of the tragic miscarriage is due to the greed and deliberate negligence of a wealthy industrialist, a perfect storm of hate and revenge is formed.
This episode in the legendary Tatort (crime scene) series is far above average, not only because of the suspenseful story, but also the realistic depiction of reality, particularly flaws in the criminal justice system that seem to favor the rich and powerful, while treating innocent victims as unavoidable casualties. The ones who suffer great loss or injury can at best simply be dismissed or at worst paid off with petty settlements. Sometimes victims just can't (or won't) accept such "justice".
This is one of those socially relevant, and at the same time very entertaining thrillers. The ending is Hitchcock quality! Fans of the series should not miss this one!
