Director: Christian Petzold
Cast: Nina Hoss, Ronald Zehrfeld, Jasna Fritzi Bauer, Mark Waschke, Rainer Bock

In the 1980's, a young doctor is transferred to a small provincial hospital in East Germany. While secretly planning her escape to the West to reunite with her lover, she must deal with pervasive suspicion, mistrust, and spying. The day of her escape is approaching, but complications arise when a young refugee is hospitalized and Barbara stands up for her. Her only supporter is her boss André, but his motives are unclear - is he in love with Barbara, or is he a mole assigned to keep an eye on her? Christian Petzold succeeds in capturing the dark times of totalitarianism that Czech audiences are so familiar with. One woman and two men, in an era that has irreversibly rewritten so many personal histories.
