Storytelling is universal, and with that, borders cannot exist. In partnership with Liberty Global, this section invites you to discover some of today’s best TV shows from around the world.
For decades, Freya has been protocoling criminal interrogations for the Berlin police department. She lives a secluded life, haunted by the gruesome accounts of violent crime - and even more by the disappearance of her daughter Marie, 11 years earlier. An old friend, Henry, takes over the department as new police commissioner. As their friendship gradually turns to love, Freya suddenly feels something akin to happiness for the first time in years. Until a similar case brings all the old memories back and she resolves to finally get to the bottom of Marie’s disappearance. Especially when evidence suggests that the two cases could be linked – together with some other unsolved murders. Taking matters into her own hands, she initiates some unconventional investigations of her own, and finds out more than she bargained for. Henry, too, gets closer to the truth – and to Freya’s own dark secret. Their newfound love suddenly in jeopardy, Freya must decide if justice is worth the sacrifice.
