Brief synopsis

Zentral Gelegen - Everything comes back... Debut by Marcel A. Heizmann
International Title - When the East is in the House

West is West and East is East. Ride the ring baby, sometimes left, sometimes right. Richi descends into the underworld,
to pay his tribute as the successor, because all hell is breaking loose at Alex.

Hinrich unexpectedly follows prematurely in the footsteps of Wolfgang, the bailiff of a centrally located cemetery.
Wolfgang's niece, Natalie, has precarious problems with her boyfriend.
Hinrich keeps his past promise to help her and so the madness takes its course.

In the Center, the city, the sirens are blaring and our anti-hero of the neighborhood has to be on his guard,
because good and evil are always and everywhere, but they don't bring love.
