In The Fade Starring
Katja’s (Kruger) life falls apart when her husband and son are killed in a bomb attack. Her friends and family try to give her the support she needs, but the lengthy search for the perpetrators opens wounds and doubts. Danilo (Moschitto), a lawyer and Nuri’s best friend, represents Katja in the trial against the two suspects – a couple from a neo-Nazi group – but it pushes Katja to the edge, leaving her with no alternative: revenge.
