The parents of the Zwickau terrorist Uwe Böhnhardt speak for the first time on television about their son. The documentary shows how the perpetrators have developed their right-wing ideas and later their right-wing terror from everyday life. “I think about the victims every day, always”, says the mother, Brigitte Böhnhardt and she is “truly infinitely sorry”. How could it have happened? How can one forgive one’s own child, who went underground for years and was involved in ten murders. A multi-dimensional presentation of the murder cases and the biographical backgrounds of the terror trio.
