A political, social contemporary document of the Federal Republic of Germany in the 70s, based on the story by Heinrich Böll. The film deals ultimately with the question of how violence and character assassination arise, today we call it "bullying". After a carnival ball, Katharina Blum spends a night with a young man who is wanted by the police as a deserter. The following morning her apartment becomes the target of a massive police operation, and Katharina is taken away as a supposed escape helper. The press reports in an unprecedented smear campaign in big headlines about the "tart". In the hysterically charged tone of a military commander, Mario Adorf, as Commissioner Beizmenne, delivers gripping word duels with Angela Winkler.
