In just one instant, Katja Sekercis (Diane Kruger) changes her life out of thin air forever: in a bomb attack, a bomb explodes killing her husband Nuri (Numan Açar) and their son Rocco (Rafael Santana). She sinks into mourning and can only numb her pain with drugs.
But then the police are targeting two suspects as perpetrators of the attack: Edda (Hanna Hilsdorf) and André Möller (Ulrich Brandhoff) – a young couple with a neo-Nazi background. The decisive stressful reference to their guilt is produced by Andrés father Jürgen (Ulrich Tukur).
When it comes to the lawsuit, Katja appears as a co-plaintiff. Nuri’s best friend Danilo (Dennis Moschitto) tries to prevail as a lawyer against defender Haberbeck (Johannes Krisch). But contrary to expectations, it comes to acquittal and Katja sees only one way to come back to life with her life: She takes her desire for justice itself in the hand.
