After the reunification of Germany, the Neumann family moves from the West to a strange, idiosyncratic town in the East to start a new life. They soon discover the town witholds shadows from a dark past, steeped in age-old mysteries that unfold a foreboding fate.
Schattental, follows the development of a town entrenched in the mystery of the past and entangled by its own inevitable future fatalism. The series takes place throughout different time periods that develop the narrative of its origins and the people who live there. In many ways it is a reflection of German culture and history packaged into a mystery/thriller narrative, about a town and the people living there throughout the ages.
