Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
Adapted from his successful German TV series about a cop named Schimanski (Gotz George), director Hajo Gies has this Polish policeman going after the killers in a vile multiple homicide. When Schimanski discovers that a young friend and his family have been brutally murdered, his investigation steps on the wrong toes, and he is suspended from the force. His reporter-girlfriend catches on to the hot story he is chasing down, and they go after a suspect whose underworld activities link him to drug lords in Marseilles. The question is, can Schimanski and his girlfriend stop competing with each other long enough to unplug the Marseilles connection?
