Past Sins (Endabrechnung, 2016)
Director: Umut Dag
A detective escaping from his past. A marriage with strange friendship and connections. A tangled crime to solve. Welcome to a case of unforgiving consequences. Eurochannel premieres Past Sins, a crime thriller in which all are suspects and nobody will be safe.
Detective Höllbacher plans to retire in a quiet and small town. After a dramatic mistake in the city, he choices to spend his last years in the force surrounded by tranquility and the familiar face of his new boss, a friend from the past. What seemed like a paradise, suddenly takes a dark turn after a harrowing homicide.
The case is as puzzling as vicious. A marriage shot dead for apparent terrorist reasons swiftly turns into a much-tangled investigation that brings back memories for detective Höllbacher. To complicate further the detective’s situation, a rival from his previous post interferes with the case.
