Jana Friedrich (Natalia Belitski) completes her medical specialist training and is offered a trainee position in the prestigious Berlin Institute for Forensic Medicine. A dream come true. However she is pulled back to reality when she is confronted with a number of cases of injured and abused children. Jana discovers at first hand how difficult it is to call the people responsible to account and to separate the children from their tormentors.
When a baby is killed bya shaken impact syndrome, Jana has had enough. Against the advice from her Professor and Mentor Kurt Bremer (Juergen Maurer) she becomes actively involved in the case around the mother Nicole Binder (Hanna Hilsdorf), her other children Jason (Till Patz) and Desiree (Carla Demmim) as well as her boyfriend Ronnie (Julius Nitschkoff). Jana does not follow legal regulations, and does not only risk opposition from parents and the youth welfare office and her medical licence, but also her own life.
"Stumme Schreie" is a ZDF contract production from Ziegler Film Berlin (Producers: Regina Ziegler, Gabriele Lohnert). Editing at the ZDF is by Gabriele Heuser.
