VERFEHLUNG

The life and faith of catholic prison minister Jakob Voelz is fundamentally troubled when his best friend and colleague Dominik Bertram is taken in custody under suspicion of sexual abuse. Jakob would be more than happy to believe Dominik is innocent. What Jakob is beginning to suspect becomes a crucial test for his faith and his self-conception as a priest: There is a truth we welcome and there is a truth we fear, about which we tend to fall silent. Jakob begins to turn against that silence within the church, in order to discover the truth.

Sebastian Blomberg, Kai Schumann, Jan Messutat
