Family man Andreas Brandt earns enough as a department head of a pharmaceutical company to face the future with wife Monika and daughter Eva calmly. But a merger puts his position in jeopardy. By chance, Brandt observes Larssen, the man in charge of the merger, as he rapes the secretary Vanessa. But instead of helping her, Brandt takes a file previously stolen from Larssen that contains incriminating material against Larssen. Brandt wants to blackmail him to keep his job, but Larssen manages to pass the buck to Brandt: Larssen claims to Monika that her husband is having an affair with Vanessa. Eva wants to confront Vanessa and is confronted with the truth about what happened. Completely horrified by Larssen's and her father's behaviour, she decides to take revenge.
