Seeking the truth in a human grey area. Lawyer Annabelle Martinelli (Natalia Wörner) has specialized in sexual offences and represents victims of domestic violence. Shoe salesperson Doreen Kruppke (Nurit Hirschfeld) seeks her support after pressing charges against her husband for assault and sexual violence. The opposing lawyer is Annabelle’s ex-boss John Quante (Fritz Karl), a cunning and unscrupulous divorce lawyer. Annabelle is convinced that her client has been systematically intimidated, beaten and forced to have sex. But the evidence is thin… One of several cases she has to deal with which put her professional distance to the test.
