Award-winning director Fatih Akin returns with an utterly gripping thriller, inspired by true events, about a woman forced to take matters into her own hands when her life is torn apart following a terrorist attack.

When Katja’s Kurdish husband and their young son are killed in a targeted bombing in Hamburg, she struggles to deal with the trauma. After the police investigation into the suspects stumbles, Katja decides that she must seek justice on her own terms, going to extreme and dangerous lengths in the search for answers. Diane Kruger gives an incredibly powerful and determined performance as Katja, which won her the Best Actress Award at Cannes 2017 and the 2018 Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Language Film.
