On July 22, 2016, the anniversary of the acts of right-wing terrorist attacs in Oslo and Utøya, a young man shoots 9 people with an immigrant background and then himself at the Olympia shopping center in Munich. Despite obvious evidence of the perpetrator’s racist motive, the act was classified by investigating authorities as a rampage and not recognized as a politically motivated violent crime.

Arbnor Segashi lost his little sister in the attack, and Sibel and Hasan Leyla lost their son. While Arbnor tries to support his traumatized parents and ensure the family’s financial survival, the Leyla family fights to have the crime recognized as right-wing terror. They only succeed after the right-wing extremist attacks in Halle and Hanau shake the Federal Republic. The film is part of the trilogy “EINZELTÄTER” (Lone Wolf), which is dedicated to people who lost loved ones in the right-wing extremist attacks of Munich 2016, Halle 2019 and Hanau 2020.
