He will not survive. Leo Janek is lying under a respirator in intensive care. Somebody dumped the gravely injured young father in front of the clinic.

Inspectors Peter Faber and Martina Bönisch hunt for clues in Janek's surroundings. Within which there have apparently been frictions of late: in his job at a bank, with his wife Klara (Inez Bjørg David: "Doc meets Dorf", "Männerherzen", "Sechs auf einen Streich – Die zertanzten Schuhe", and many others), with his son Martin Janek, and also with his brother-in-law Frank (Constantin von Jascheroff), for whom he procured a loan.

All this felt like a dead end to adventure-loving Leo Janek. He got his kicks parachuting. Inspectors Nora Dalay and Daniel Kossik are investigating his skydiving club undercover. They find out that Leo Janek was involved in the BASE jumping scene where parachuting from tall buildings is considered the ultimate challenge. Did he lose his life in a daring jump?

Nora Dalay is also out on a limb: she has sparked the interest of attractive parachute trainer Jules Lanke (Albrecht Schuch: "Die Vermessung der Welt", "Der Turm", "Neue Vahr Süd") ...
