AUS DEM NICHTS
The police delve into Nuri’s criminal past, investigating in the drug world before arresting two suspects from the National Socialist scene: the neo-Nazi couple Edda and André Möller. Danilo, a lawyer and Nuri’s best friend, represents Katja in the subsequent trial.
The evidence presented in court clearly suggests Edda’s and André’s guilt. But the situation is exacerbated when more and more details emerge on Nuri’s criminal past and the police find Katja under the influence of drugs.
Katja wants justice and salvation – there’s simply no alternative for her.
