The story of a young woman vilified for an alleged association with terrorism, this Heinrich Böll adaptation offers a powerful example of an individual’s defiance as they fall victim to a culture of fear. The film is unflinching in its exploration of media accountability and collective paranoia, the menace of state manipulation ringing as true today as it did 40 years ago.
