Operation Spring is a documentary triller about how Austria recently tested its new law and methods of investigation. It is a step-by-step unraveling of the actual events and a meticulous study of the core incriminating evidence as seen from different angles. In the beginning, the film explores the difficulties encountered by the police and the court in managing the new investigation methods and analyzing the procured data, however, as the film progresses, the events become increasingly menacing, taking on a Kafkaeque quality. The different side of the story are presented by people directly involved, who describe what they experienced at the time and how they perceived the events.
