The Innocent

Der Unschuldige

Ruth works in a neuroscience lab, but paradoxically she’s more interested in metaphysics than biology. She’s part of an extremely conservative Christian family, who reads the Bible literally in return for security and protection. However, her constructed reality is torn apart when her former lover is released from jail after 20 years, after he served his sentence for a crime which – according to Ruth – he never committed. A transcendental film that doesn’t give easy answers but rather poses its question to each and every one of us: What – and why – do you believe in?
