The Mission

An exciting thriller within the milieu of witness-protection, written by triple Grimme prize winning author Holger Karsten Schmidt, realized by Student Academy Award winner Florian Baxmeyer.

The 16-year-old Miki Witt witnesses the murder in the criminal milieu of a high-risk clan. Hence, the State Office of Criminal Investigation (LKA) takes him and his parents under a witness-protection program. It is the first mission for the witness protector Sarah Brandt, over which she also has to take the leadership. What cannot be guessed is that this mission will ask her to make the choice of her life.
