Vienna,1922: Peter Perg, a former detective, returns to his native city Vienna after seven years in Russian captivity. The former Empire, for which he went to war is shattered. In the young republic, marked by hunger, unemployment and crime, he is a stranger .
But then he is surprisingly confronted with a mysterious murder: One of the comrades with whom Perg was in Siberia, has been murdered.
