Description: In many ways the German equivalent of Running on Empty, Die Innere Sicherheit takes a dramatic look at the difficulties faced by the child of fugitives. Teenaged Jeanne (Julia Hummer) has lived in hiding all her life as the daughter of ex-terrorists. Her family lives in Portugal and plans to permanently leave Europe for Brazil, but when their money is burgled, Jeanne and her parents must return to Germany with hopes of acquiring some cash from their past associates. They find shelter in an abandoned house with the help of Heinrich (Bilge Bingul), a young man with whom Jeanne discovers a mutual attraction. As her parents struggle to gather funding from their old friends, who are now respectable society members eager to disavow their past activities, Jeanne begins to crave a more normal life -- complete with people, cool clothes, and a boyfriend.~ Rebecca Flint Marx, All Movie Guide
