Katja’s life falls apart when, out of the blue, her husband Nuri and little son Rocco are killed in a bomb attack. Her friends and family try to give her the support she needs, and Katja somehow manages to make it through the funeral. But the mind-numbing search for the perpetrators and the reasons behind the senseless killing complicates Katja’s painful mourning by opening up wounds and doubts. Danilo, a lawyer and Nuri’s best friend, represents Katja in the eventual trial against the two suspects: a young couple from the neo-Nazi scene. The trial pushes Katja to the edge, but there’s simply no alternative for her: she wants justice.
Written and directed by the award-winning film-maker Fatih Akin (The Edge of Heaven, Soul Kitchen), In the Fade won the 2018 Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Language Film. Diane Kruger, who plays the lead role of Katja, was named Best Actress at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.
