Vienna, 1939. Professor Speckstein's dog has been brutally killed and he
wants to know why. But these are uncharitable times and one must be
careful where one probes...
When an unexpected house
call leads Doctor Beer to Speckstein's apartment, he finds himself in
the bedroom of Zuzka, the professor's niece. Wide-eyed, flirtatious, and
not detectably ill, Zuzka leads the young doctor to her window and
opens up a view of their apartment block that Beer has never known.
Across the shared courtyard there is nine-year-old Anneliese, the lonely
daughter of an alcoholic. Five windows to the left lives a secretive
mime who comes home late at night and keeps something - or someone -
precious hidden from view. From the garret drifts the mournful sound of
an Oriental's trumpet, and a basement door swings closed behind the
building's inscrutable janitor.

Does one of these
enigmatic neighbours have blood on their

Doctor Beer, who has his own reasons for
keeping his private life hidden from public scrutiny, reluctantly
becomes embroiled in an enquiry that forces him to face the dark
realities of Nazi rule.
