The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum
After celebrating a lively carnival party, the young, single and attractive housekeeper Katharina Blum spends the night with a chance acquaintance. Next morning her apartment is stormed by the special branch in search of the man - a suspected terrorist – but he has already left. Through this incident, Katharina Blum comes sadly to the attention of both the police and media. Grilled by the investigating police inspector, she loses her job, is scorned by her neighbors, and a cynical reporter working for a large tabloid drags her life and name through the mud. Unable to bear the enormous psychological pressures that come from prejudice, disparage and open hate, Katharina grabs for a gun in order to salvage whatever remains of her honor.
