Out of nowhere, Katja’s life falls apart when 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 mindnumbing search for the perpetrators and reasons behind the senseless killing complicate Katja‘s painful mourning, opening wounds and doubts.
