Vincke and Verstuyft are the Antwerp police department’s top detective team. When a high-ranking official is murdered, they are tasked with catching the killer by any means necessary. The clues point toward a hitman by the name of Angelo Ledda. Ledda suffers from the onset of Alzheimer’s disease and finds carrying out his missions increasingly difficult.
