Out of nowhere, Katja’s life falls apart when her Turkish-born husband Nuri and little son Rocco are killed in a bomb attack. Her friends and family try to give her the support she needs, and she somehow manages to make it through the funeral. But the mind numbing search for the perpetrators and reasons behind the senseless killing complicate her painful mourning, opening wounds and doubts. Danilo, a lawyer and Nuri’s best friend, represents Katja in the eventual trial against the two suspects, but the process reveals an imperfect legal system that leaves her bereft. “An edge-of-your-seat thriller. Diane Kruger is superb.” (Hollywood Reporter)
