In the Fade

Out of nowhere, Katja’s (Kruger, in a Cannes prize-winning performance) life falls apart when her 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 Katja somehow manages to make it through the funeral. However, the mind-numbing search for the perpetrators and reasons behind the senseless killing complicate Katja‘s painful mourning – opening wounds and doubts. Danilo (Denis Moschitto), a lawyer and Nuri’s best friend, represents Katja in the eventual trial against the two suspects: a young couple from the neo-Nazi scene. The trial pushes Katja to the edge, but there’s simply no alternative for her: she wants justice. Directed with characteristic energy and adrenalin by Fatih Akin (Head On, The Edge of Heaven).
