After Katja's husband and young son are killed in a terrorist bomb attack in Hamburg, she struggles with grief and the imposing probing of the authorities and her family, finding solace in hard drugs. A police investigation identifies a pair of young neo-Nazis as the key suspects, but a lack of evidence fails to incriminate them. In response, Katja decides to take matters into her own hands but her search for justice takes increasingly dangerous and unexpected turns.
