Scene of the Crime - Borderline
Tatort - Grenzfall
A young man fails to come home one night in 1968. His disappearance in the immediate vicinity of the Iron Curtain remains unexplained for many years. He leaves behind him a wife and young son. It is the time of the Prague Spring. The Czech authorities strenuously deny any incident on the border, although numerous signs suggest that dramatic events took place on the night in question. Only decades later does the son discover the truth about his father - and is forced to realise that nothing is just in the past in the border country and that the events of a long-ago night continue to have repercussions for the present day.
