A psychotic criminal tries to juggle the demands of violence and an active social life.
It's a dystopian future in Brüteville City, where crime is running rampant due to a gangland styled war between rival mob bosses Johann Tannhauser and Racken. Gunter Vogler and Martine Mahler are two of Tannhauser's hit people. Sociopath Gunter kills for killing's sake. Martine, who is Tannhauser's girlfriend, is having an affair with Gunter. In a robbery gone wrong, Gunter is shot in the face and captured by the police. After recuperating, Gunter is convinced by Police Commissioner Eva Braden to work for them against Tannhauser, when she shows him that Martine was the one who purposefully shot him, probably on Tannhauser's orders. What is as distasteful to Gunter is that the face of one of the police detectives he killed in the botched robbery is transplanted onto him as part of his reconstructive surgery. Now masquerading as that detective, Gunter is partnered with overly sensitive Lt. Karl Hagerman, who cannot stomach that he is now working side by side with the man who killed his partner. Added to the complicated situation is that both Hagerman and Braden have what they believe is more than a professional relationship with Gunter's predecessor. And Martine is pregnant with who she says is Gunter's baby... or is it? Through it all, Gunter is torn between his new life and his past life as a sociopath, which may still be at the core of his character.
