The film begins with a massacre: Hun horsemen storm the small town of Anröchte, beheading people at random. The next day detective inspector Konka arrives with his assistant Walter to investigate.
At first the mayor claims to know nothing about the murders. Anröchte is a tourist attraction and he does not want its reputation ruined. Witnesses point to a weekly event among local youth. A lot of arrests are made, but there is no sign of the Huns. Not even the forensic team in Dortmund can help. A suspect detained by police in Anröchte confesses, but it is obviously a put-up job. A little later he is found dead – again with his head chopped off.
The clues lead nowhere. Konka’s attempt to establish a motive fails. He realizes that in a world where murder is indiscriminate and meaningless, motives are a distraction. The point is to arrest the culprit. Konka and Walter set off.
An absurd crime story. A black comedy.
