Based on the internationally bestselling novel by Ferdinand Von Schirach 'The Collini Case' is a masterful court room drama carefully exposing and laying bare the sins of the past. Fabrizio Collini (Franco Nero) is accused, without any apparent motive, of murdering the respected industrial magnate Hans Meyer (Manfred Zapatka). For Caspar, (Elyas M'Barek) accepting this as his first case as defence counsel would propel his career exponentially. But the victim was not only the grandfather of his childhood sweetheart but also a mentor and father figure to him in his youth. As Caspar delves deeper, he unravels the dark secret past of the family. He soon discovers a scandalous law that shakes the legal justice system to its core, turning it into one of Germany's most high-profile cases of the century.
