A prisoner has been murdered. Investigating detectives Leitmayr and Batic don’t even have to think twice about moving their entire office into the prison and solving the matter right in the eye of the storm. The fact that two ructious prison gangs are irreconcilably opposed to each other inside the jail doesn't exactly make things easy for the investigators, but when model prisoner Scholz, of all people, becomes the focus of their investigations, the situation threatens to escalate. Detective duo Leitmayr and Batic have already had to solve 94 cases for the venerable Tatort series, but director Thomas Stiller wouldn't be ... well, himself, if he passed up the opportunity to once again turn the decades-old classic German Sunday evening entertainment into a little criminal masterpiece whose inner logic is just as captivating as the technical finesse with which Stiller stages his own script. Exciting small screen entertainment in big screen format - and entirely without any compromise. Chapeau!
