Synopsis
In northern Albania, people's lives are defined by the vendetta.
Fearful of the avengers, thousands of people dare not leave
their homes. Death awaits them the moment they cross the
threshold of their door. A German nun is the only person resisting
the bloodthirsty ritual of honor killings.
Christian knows every crack and every bump on the wall in front of him. For twelve years, he has not left this room because his father murdered someone. His last hope is the German nun, Sister Christina Färber. She is a mediator and is trying to achieve the near impossible. She is hoping to
get the two families, sworn enemies, to abandon their vendetta and seek reconciliation. Only a few times has she ever been successful.
This is a film about families immersed in the culture of the vendetta, living – and dying – by the laws of honor. Only Sister Christina is struggling to overcome this violent ritual and the KANUN.
