One day in July 1982, André Bamberski receives the shocking news that his daughter has died. Kalinka was 14 years old and was spending a holiday in Germany with her mother Dany and her new husband, doctor Dieter Krombach. It soon becomes clear that she died in suspicious curcumstances. The attitude of Krombach and a disturbing autopsy bring up many unanswered questions. André is quickly convinced of Krombach’s guilt and starts a fight to reval the truth. It’s a fight that will last 27 years.
The Kalinka Bamberski case caused considerable uproar in France and Germany. Director-screenwriter Vincent Garenq (Guilty, The Clearstream Affair) adapted André Bamberski’s book, ‘Pour que justice te soit rendue’, and turned it into a gripping crime drama with a stellar performance by Daniel Auteuil (The 8th Day, Un coeur en hiver, Hidden) as the tormented André Bamberski. With Marie Josée-Croze (The Barbarian Invasions, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly) as Dany and Sebastian Kroch (The Lives of Others, A Good Day to Die Hard) as Dieter Krombach.
