The bleaker side of life in Zurich emerges in this Swiss-made detective drama. When the police refuse to investigate a corruption charge against his higher-ups, the protagonist of the story (Kurt Frueh), embittered, leaves the force and becomes a private investigator. Some time later he stumbles onto a case involving blackmail and an oversexed, under-aged girl. He finds the girl, and, tragically, becomes involved with her.
