His worthy ally, Diane Kruger, in her first German-speaking role, which gives the best interpretation of her career as a woman losing her family to a blind terrorist attack and begins a dark journey through sorrow, anger and thirst for justice.

About the film in Greek

Από το πουθενά, η ζωή της Κάτια καταρρέει όταν ο κουρδικής καταγωγής σύζυγός της, Νούρι και ο μικρός τους γιος, Ρόκο, σκοτώνονται σε μια βομβιστική επίθεση. Με τη βοήθεια φίλων και συγγενών, η Κάτια καταφέρνει να αντέξει το σοκ και προσπαθεί να σταθεί και πάλι στα πόδια της.

Όμως, η αναζήτηση των ενόχων και η διαλεύκανση των κινήτρων πίσω από τη δίχως νόημα τραγωδία περιπλέκει το πένθος της Κάτια και κρατά ανοιχτές τις πληγές της. Ο Ντανίλο, δικηγόρος και καλύτερος φίλος του Νούρι, εκπροσωπεί την Κάτια στη μετέπειτα δίκη ενάντια σε δύο υπόπτους: ένα νεαρό ζευγάρι που κινούνταν σε νεοναζί κύκλους. Η απόφαση του δικαστηρίου φέρνει την Κάτια στα άκρα, αλλά δεν υπάρχει άλλη εναλλακτική: απαιτεί δικαιοσύνη.



I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, music, good books, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socializing and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and, there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world. But I never lost my love for Crete for a minute. And six years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
