A group of rubble women work for the Scharrhahn building company in 1946 Berlin. The women are primarily focused on their own survival; only old Ms. Knorz and supervisor Anna Lubitzke try to build a sense of team solidarity.
It is only after they take a joint stand against their dishonest employer and discover that one of their number lives in desparate poverty and needs their help, that the womens' lives begin to recover a sense of purpose.
Based on the novel Anna Lubitzke by Ludwig Turek.
