Tatort (Crime Scene) -
The Tree of Salvation

Year of production 2008

 
    When a young Turkish woman is found hanged in
a wooded area, the police at first assume suicide
because four other young Turks have already
hanged themselves from the same tree. However,
the autopsy finds signs of violence and the girl's
boyfriend has also disappeared. Investigations
begin in the overheated atmosphere of a political
conflict: The recent completion of a minaret sets
the population groups against each other.
