Directed by Faith Akin (Goodbye Berlin), In The Fade (Aus Dem Nichts) is about a woman dealing with unimaginable grief. Katja (Diane Kruger) is married to Kurdish drug dealer Nuri (Numan Acar), running a small travel agency and tax shop in the Turkish quarter of Hamburg. They have a young son, Rocco, whom Katja leaves with her husband at their storefront, only to return later to carnage. There has been a bomb blast, taking the lives of Katja’s family. She is convinced the Neo-Nazi’s are behind the killings and will stop at nothing to get justice for the lost.
