Synopsis

German spy Günter Bachmann (Philip Seymour Hoffman) runs a secret anti-terrorism team with a goal to develop sources within the Islamic community to lead them to high-profile suspects.

When Issa Karpov, a young half-Chechen, half-Russian immigrant (Grigoriy Dobrygin) who has been brutally tortured turns up in Hamburg's Islamic community, he connects with human-rights attorney Annabel Richter (Rachel McAdams) in an effort to claim a hefty inheritance left by his father. Both German and U.S. security agencies take an interest in Issa, whom they believe to be an escaped militant jihadist.

While Hamburg intelligence head Dieter Mohr (Rainer Bock) wants to immediately arrest Issa before he can make contact with terrorist cells, Bachman wants to wait, in order to plan a more strategic move.
