RIDING THE STORM, a five-part series on the fate of a woman and a family, begins in the summer of 1914 and literally takes the pulse of the entire 20th century. "We did our very best to be as faithful as possible to Charlotte Link's splendid family saga", says Regina Ziegler. RIDING THE STORM was shot on the Baltic Sea, in Vogtland and Poland, in the Czech Republic and St. Petersburg, in Munich and Bavaria, in Toscany and New York City. The cast reads like a who's who of German television personalities.
