Eva and Max Gruber enjoy a healthy marriage. While she works as a journalist in the cultural sector, he is an independent artist teaching at a local college. The unconventional yet well-liked pedagogue can get his students to enjoy almost anything, even nude drawing. Until one day the police turn up – and accuse him of sexual misconduct. Max and Eva are shocked when the allegation comes at them like a bolt out of the blue. Following several interviews, however, it soon becomes clear that the girl did spend a night at Max’s atelier the previous weekend. Sabine Boss’s TV drama shows how social and media instigation can back a teacher into a corner.
