It is 1943â€”the height of the Second World War. With the men
taken by the army, Berlin has become a city of women. And
while her husband fights on the Eastern Front, Sigrid
SchrĂ¶der is, for all intents and purposes, the model
soldierâ€™s wife: She goes to work every day, does as much
with her rations as she can, and dutifully cares for her
meddling mother-in-law, all the while ignoring the horrific
immoralities of the regime.
But behind this faĂ§ade is an entirely different Sigrid, a
woman who dreams of her former Jewish lover, who is now lost
in the chaos of the war.
Sigridâ€™s tedious existence is turned upside down when she
finds herself hiding a mother and her two young
daughtersâ€”whom she believes might be her loverâ€™s familyâ€”and
she must make terrifying choices that could cost her everything.
