    Brief synopsis

    Max (Til Schweiger), ehemaliger KSK-Soldat, muss Nina (Luna Schweiger), Vollwaise und einzige Zeugin eines furchtbaren Verbrechens, beschützen.
    Beide sind auf der Flucht vor einem übermächtigen Gegner (Heiner Lauterbach), der nur ein Ziel hat: Nina zu töten. Auf der Flucht nähern sich Max, der ein Einzelgänger ist, und Nina, die in ihrem kurzen Leben noch nie einem Erwachsenen vertraut hat, an Aus anfänglicher Distanz wird Freundschaft. Aus Unsicherheit wird Vertrauen. Max beschützt Nina und Nina beschützt Max.
    In einer schier ausweglosen Situation finden die beiden Zuflucht, zuerst bei Max’ bestem Kameraden aus Kriegszeiten Rudi (Moritz Bleibtreu) und schließlich bei Max’ großer Liebe Sara (Karoline Schuch). Max’ Ex-Freundin, die mittlerweile als Staatsanwältin arbeitet, setzt mit den beiden die Flucht fort. Es kommt zu einem fulminanten Showdown, bei dem wir nicht wissen, ob unsere Protagonisten überleben werden.
