Abuse of those needing protection: Sherry Horman’s tense thriller takes on a controversial topic. One evening, a child runs out in front of the car driven by Inspector Judith Volkmann (Jördis Triebel). Only an emergency stop can prevent a very nasty accident. When she gets out to help the boy, he runs away. Volkmann is suspicious. As the boy has not been reported missing, she searches for him on her own and finds out that he and his elder brother were living in a large Berlin refugee home – and both disappeared on the same day. Further evidence in the course of her investigations lead her to fear the worst.
SHERRY HORMANN (*1960) is one of Germany's most successful female directors with films like Guys and Balls (2004), Desert Flower (2009) or 3096 Days (2013).
