Au nom de ma fille (Kalinka)
André and Danièle Bamberki have two children, a son and a daughter, Kalinka. Dieter Krombach is a German doctor who helps the family when their car goes off the road, injuring Kalinka. He becomes very attentive towards Danièle and they end up having an affair, which leads to André divorcing her.

The children go to visit their mother in her new home with Krombach in Germany. While there Kalinka mysteriously dies, aged only 14, allegedly as a result of an injection of Kobalt-Ferrlecit (cobalt-iron), given by Krombach supposedly to help her tan. André is, however, suspicious and obtains the autopsy report. This indicates that his daughter may have been sexually assaulted. From this point on he is convinced that Krombach isn't telling the truth and sets out to uncover exactly what happened. His daughters body is exhumed and a further autopsy shows that the sexual organs had been removed, a fact that further deepens his suspicion.

What follows is perhaps one of the most protracted attempts to bring someone to justice, with André being continuingly thwarted by the failings of the judicial system. Krombach is eventually convicted in absentia in France but is released by the German authorities after his arrest in Austria on an international arrest warrant. At this point André gives up on the legal system and takes matters into his own hands.

Based closely on a true story, we see how André Bamberki dedicated his life to obtaining justice for his daughter at great personal cost, both financial and relational.
