When her husband Nuri and six-year-old son Rocco are killed in a bomb attack, Katja begins a search for answers that makes the mourning process all the more painful, complicated as it is by a thirst for revenge on the hand and a self-destructive streak on the other. The trial of two neo-Nazi suspects pushes her to the edge, but there’s simply no alternative for her: she wants justice.

Diane Kruger won Best Actress at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival for her role in this raw, gripping German drama, written and directed by Fatih Akin (Head On, DFF27). As the German-born son of Turkish immigrants, Akin was inspired by a real-life spate of xenophobic terrorist attacks in Germany in the 2000s.
