"Terror" by Ferdinand von Schirach
directed by Julian Pölsler
Fighter pilot, Major Lara Koch, has shot down a plane that has been hijacked by a terrorist. The plane is heading for a stadium of 70,000 people. Koch’s pragmatic decision – one in which she breaks constitutional law – is to end the lives of 164 people on the plane rather than allow the terrorist to slaughter a far greater number. At the end, the audience must vote: guilty or not guilty.
The cast is exceptional chosen - all characters are placed by women.
Definitely a must see!
