This German thriller is about the dangerous rebirth of far-right extremism in modern Europe. Katja is a wife and mother living in Hamburg, who loses both her husband and six-year-old son to a bomb blast. It has all the hallmarks of a racially targeted attack, on the basis of her husband’s Muslim heritage, and Katja finds herself in the position of not only being widow but later a key prosecution witness in the ensuing trial. Not long before the bomb went off, she noticed a young woman leaving a bike outside her husband’s business. The box on it rack housed the explosives and Katja’s testimony is key to catching the suspects. The trial develops differently from the way Katja had hoped and the defence lawyer manages to settle the case in favour of the defendants. After a time of mourning and injustice, Katja seeks revenge. In German with English subtitles.
