Whilst Anna (Nadja Uhl) grows up in Germany, Lotte (Thekla Reuten, Blood Wedding) moves to the Netherlands and they are estranged from one another throughout World War II. More than half a century later, Anna, an old woman now, seeks out her unwilling sister only to find that their different war experiences in hostile camps may have damaged their relationship forever...
