After the accident of a van transporting four prisoners, the inmates manage to escape. They reach Schwanitz undetected and want to leave the country by ferry in a few hours.
During a break-in at the forester's house and the ensuing gun battle, the forester is shot and one of the escapees is wounded. The four continue to flee and arrive at the veterinarian's office, where Jule Christiansen treats the wound of the injured man. In the process, the escapees take Jule and her new intern hostage to go into hiding until evening. Until now, nobody knows that the transport has crashed and that the prisoners have escaped...
Only when Hauke Jacobs and Hannah Wagner find the dead forester and still investigate the traces, they get first clues about the escapees.
Jule Christiansen muss versuchen, Hilfe zu holen, doch die Ausbrecher haben einen Plan: während einer sich um die Fluchtmöglichkeiten sowie Pässe und Tickets kümmert, bleiben die anderen unerkannt bei Jule und der Praktikantin in der Tierarztpraxis. Doch die Situation zwischen Geiseln und Geiselnehmer eskaliert.
Fortunately, Hauke Jacobs becomes suspicious when he pays Jule a visit at the practice. From the smallest clues, he senses the danger for Jule and the trainee...
But when they storm the practice, the gangsters and their hostages are already ready for the next part of the escape and escape them at the last minute. The escapees don't know yet that one of them is playing a double game...
In a wild chase and an exciting show-down on the ferry to Scandinavia, Hannah Wagner and Hauke Jacobs are able to catch the escapees and free Jule and the intern.
