The movie

Ruth is a simple mother whose life is turned upside down when the religious and patriarchal system she lives by is called into question by unfathomable events. A touching tale of self-discovery.

Ruth is a deeply religious mother and laboratory technician whose life is shattered when her first fiancé, a man sentenced for murder 20 years prior and who had supposedly died in prison, resurfaces… For his second feature, Simon Jaquemet invites us on a hallucinatory exploration of the human mind. With its quasi mystic atmosphere, Der Unschuldige questions our beliefs and crushes our convictions.
