Paula (Franka Potente) has one dream in life, to become a successful doctor just like her beloved grandfather (Werner Dissel). So when she is offered a place on a prestigious anatomy course taught by a legendary professor she can't quite believe her luck. Delight soon turns to horror when during her first anatomy class, Paula discovers David (Arndt Schwering-Sohnrey), a nice young man she met a few days earlier, lying in front of her on the dissecting table. Shaken by this experience, Paula ignores all warnings and investigates his mysterious death. As other students begin disappearing, Paula grows more determined to search for the answers... even if it means she could be the next victim.
