Winter Storm

Munich 1920. Commissioner Reitmeyer has returned from the war and is trying to hide the traumata incurred there from his surroundings, muffling the panic attacks by playing the violin, despite the fact that the police has their work cut out for them: food shortage and inflation have lead to a theft plague sweeping the city and to thriving business for black-marketeers and traffickers.
