Rebekka grows up secluded village in the Black Forest. She is popular with everyone, has had a boyfriend for a long time and seems to lead a carefree life. But appearances are deceptive: since her older brother Dennis jumped to his death two years ago, the family idyll is nothing but a façade. "An unusually high number of suicides and murders occurred in the small village in the Black Forest where I grew up - among the victims was my best friend.
