The treasure of the Nibelungen is thought to be the biggest lost treasure in the world, supposedly still hidden somewhere in Germany. People dedicate their money, energy and even their lives to get hold of it. Eik is one of them. He was once obsessed by the need to prove that the treasure is for real and not just a myth. But in his search for the famous \'Prize of the Nibelungen\', his beloved wife and his best friend Albert lost their lives. Since then, this handsome man in his forties gave up his quest to live a quite and withdrawn life with his teenage daughter Krimi. Ten years later all this changes as a new lead unfolds and this time it may just be the right one. Once again Eik is part of the game. Together with the young and extrovert Justus and the sexy, highly intelligent and slightly high-strung scientist Katharina, he starts on a spectacular hunt across Europe...
