Fate introduces the aging cabaret singer Ruth (played by Hannelore Elsner, the Grande Dame of German cinema) and the dashing yet confused Jonas (Max Riemelt, Sense8). Ruth is running from her past and Jonas from his future - but together, they will help each other find the strength to choose life. Director Uwe Janson weaves a tale that effortlessly shifts between World War II, the post-war generation and today in this powerful, life-affirming drama.
