Inspector Konka and his assistant Walter have to solve the mysterious case of a headless corpse, decapitated by a Hun rider, in the small town of Anröchte. At first, the mayor claims to know nothing about the murders. He does not want to endanger Anröchte's reputation as a haven for tourists. Despite several arrests, there are no clues to the Hun riders. Director Hannah Dörr transforms Wolfram Lotz's lovingly satirical original into a West German fever dream: "An anti-social romantic comedy that is impossible to resist. The film is worthwhile for those who love or hate the German small towns, or for those who can't stand any more German TV thrillers. Director Hannah Dörr has achieved wonderful things here."
