“Two sides of the abyss”: The story of the new RTL + thriller
Wuppertal police officer Luise Berg (Anne Ratte-Polle, 49) is the focus of “Two Sides of the Abyss”. During a routine assignment in a hardware store, she experiences a shock. She sees her daughter’s alleged killer. Dennis Opitz (Anton Dreger, 27) was released early from prison after seven years.
When more murders happen, Luise suspects the seemingly purified Dennis. But nobody believes her. Then her younger daughter Josi (Lea van Acken, 24) is targeted by Dennis.
