Starring Violetta Schurawlow, Tobias Moretti, Sammy Sheik, Friedrich von Thun, Robert Palfrader
Özge (Violetta Schurawlow) is a young Turkish-born taxi driver, who attends evening classes and is also an ambitious Thai-boxer. She rarely speaks
and trains hard. One day she witnesses an extremely brutal murder. The suspect is an insane serial killer, who is aware that Özge has seen him committing
the murder. A life-and-death struggle ensues.
In his job as a police officer, Christian Steiner (Tobias Moretti) often has contact with people from immigrant backgrounds. Some years ago his wife
left him, taking their child with her. Since then Steiner has been living with his father (Friedrich von Thun) and cares for him as best he can. Steiner
finds it very difficult to trust other people, especially women.
