At the heart of the medical thriller is Dr. Anna Hellberg (Claudia Michelsen), a surgeon at a clinic. With her husband Gunnar (Jan Messutat), a doctor at the same hospital, and son Philipp (Oskar von Schönfels) she lives in a house on the Mecklenburg Lake District. The workload in the hospital and a newly engaged controller, which is to further optimize the processes there, put pressure on Anna. When ten-year-old girl Leah (Hedda Erlebach) is allergic to an antibiotic after a routine operation, which Anna did not give her, and has an anaphylactic shock, the doctor begins to investigate the neglect in everyday hospital life. Has she shut up too long in the face of soiled surgical instruments, tolerated the carelessness of the system? Anna learns that at her clinic life-threatening incidents accumulate, which are apparently not taken seriously enough and covered up. The more unpleasant truths Anna reveals, the more she becomes isolated and hostile. Alone in her confidant, the surgical nurse Franziska (Anneke Kim Sarnau), she finds support.
