A serial killer is preying upon students at the University of Vienna.
American exchange student Jake Meyer is more concerned about putting his life back together than the tabloid reports of a killer on the loose. After the tragic death of his friend earlier in the school year, Jake wants nothing more than to return to the life of a typical college student.
But when Jake’s study group decides to turn their class project into a profile of the murderer-at-large, they soon find themselves on the maniac’s hit list. Those closest to Jake quickly become pawns in a killer’s game, the rules of which are unknown.
With the help of an American consular officer and an Austrian detective, Jake must struggle to unravel the mystery before it is too late.
