The arrival of the new, young German teacher, Helena (Alice Dwyer, Homicide Unit Istanbul), turns Jonas’s life completely upside down. While recognizing and encouraging his writing talent, she is also using his emerging trust to build an intimate relationship with him. However, Jonas has no idea that Helena actually is putting in motion a deadly plan…
