Helen Dorn - Under Control
Filmfest 2014

German Age Rating

Mia, the four year-old daughter of businessman Hans Thomsen, disappears under mysterious circumstances. A massive police search produces no clues about what happened in the residential Düsseldorf neighborhood that afternoon. Did the young girl run away or is she the victim of a kidnapping or a more violent crime?
Throughout the difficult investigation Helen Dorn begins piece by piece to unlock the mystery of what happened to the little girl on that sunny day. And the secret that, behind the facade of wealth, success and happiness, are equal measures of tragedy and destruction.
