In the little town of Herzsprung almost nothing has changed since German unification—except a rise in unemployment. Johanna, a young mother and widow, becomes one of the unemployed and lives on welfare. To make matters worse, her husband commits suicide and she falls in love with a dark-skinned, roving adventurer; the whole village starts talking about it.
The feature film debut of director Helke Misselwitz (Winter Adé, 1988). Part of the series WENDE FLICKS: Last Films from East Germany.
