Two life stories: Malou, born in France, married to a German jew, driven by circumstances to South America - the panorama of the pre-war generation, mirrored in a woman's extraordinary destiny. Hannah, an independent, bright, modern woman of our time with a longing for freedom and self-realization, living in present-day Berlin among various cultural life-styles.
Two love stories: Malou and Paul, a fairy tale nostalgic couple of our dreams - beautiful, wealthy, romantic and in love - a lovestory, which must end tragically.
Hannah and Martin are a very real, contemporary couple confronted with all the acute difficulties of a socalled "relationship" between two people. Mother and daughter, tales of two women, reflecting one another, crossing paths in various ways, complementing each others story.
