German original text, English translation
The 24th of December. Time: 22:30. One woman, one man, one questioning. The man claims that the woman has intentions of executing a terrorist attack with her ex-husband at midnight. But why and how would a professor of philosophy get jihadist ideas? The woman denies everything. In another cell her ex-husband is being questioned as well. Will he turn on her to safe his own skin? Is there a bomb at all and who’s playing who? The clock is ticking.
