A few years ago, when he was on the police force, Georg Walz accidentally shot and injured a woman while chasing a Middle-Eastern bad guy. The woman was brain-damaged for life, and Georg was overcome with guilt at this and was also forced into early retirement. To occupy his time, he has been keeping tabs on a neighbor of his who closely resembles the woman he shot. In addition, she has a Middle-Eastern boyfriend, so maybe she can help him connect the clues to the bad guy he failed to catch earlier. When the ex-policeman and the pretty girl become good (but platonic) friends, a number of incidents occur which make their bond even closer.
