Jeder Ort hat seine Legende

Every place has its legend

Andreas earns his living as a YouTuber and produces clips about ghost stories for his channel "ParaSight". In real life, he believes less in supernatural phenomena.
His new project takes him deep into the Ebersberg forest. According to a legend, a “white woman” haunts the Hubertus Chapel. Together with his friend and temporary cameraman Max, he tries to capture a paranormal phenomenon on video.
In the beginning everything goes as usual, until all of a sudden the alarm system in Andi's car goes off. Irritated, they leave the spooky place, unaware that they were never alone.
