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 mind numbing search for the perpetrators and reasons behind the senseless killing complicate Katja's painful mourning, opening 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.

"A starkly intimate character study that swerves into vigilante thriller-dom." - Entertainment Weekly

"Diane Kruger's raw, real-as-it-gets performance as a grieving woman bent on vengeance in the German thriller "In the Fade" grabs from the get-go and never lets loose its grip." - New York Daily News
