A woman takes the law into her own hands after police ignore her pleas to arrest the man responsible for her husband's death, and finds herself not only under arrest for murder but falling in love with an officer.
Acting is very passable, it's just the storyline that in so many instances is just totally fairytale unbelievable. Pick one of several premises outlined in this film.. the leaps of faith to get them anywhere near believable are absolutely huge... this just ain't never gonna happen the way they're portraying it. This really has the style feel of a Hollywood version of the storyline.. but made in Germany. Watched it once a while back, recently viewed again.. feel exactly the same. You like the idea.. it's just the reality that's making little sense. So should you just want to throw logic and common sense out the window, then this movie will get you there.
