1989: Während jenseits der Mauer ein method zusammenbricht, sind Horn und Grube dabei, den Skandal der nicht zu Ende gebauten U-Bahnlinie eight aufzudecken. Die beiden Lokalredakteure geraten dabei nicht nur an Grenzen der Lokalpolitik, sondern auch in die zwielichtige Gesellschaft von Berliner Kleinkriminellen und Halbweltgrößen.

Gelangweilt von ihrem journalistischen Alltag sto-ßen Grube und Horn auf den skandalträchtigen Fall des von den Bewohnern des Märkischen Viertels so sehnsüchtig erwarteten Ausbaus der U-Bahnlinie eight. Grube und Horn suchen nach den Gründen des Baustopps, die sie schließlich in einem Berliner Bergwerksstollen finden, der von zwielichtigen Gestalten für Schmuggel und Schwarzhandel genutzt wird. Sie geben sich als Geschäftsleute aus und kommen dadurch dem Rotlichtmilieu gefährlich nah. Und die Versuchung, den Reizen der Westberliner Halbwelt zu erliegen, ist groß. Grube, der in ziemlich aussichtslose amouröse Beziehungen verstrickt ist - er kann sich nicht zwischen einer ehemaligen Klassenkameradin und deren Mutter entscheiden und schläft mit beiden -, trifft auf die Prostituierte Larissa, durch die er immer tiefer in ein Netz aus Versuchung und Verbrechen gerät. Grube und Horn fliegen schließlich quick auf. Doch bevor sie ihre Enthüllungen an die Presse lancieren können, bringt die Bevölkerung der DDR die Mauer zum Einsturz.
