Nelly (Jördis Triebel) flees East Berlin for the West in 1978 with her young son but is distressed and puzzled to be interrogated about the boy’s Russian father, who she believes is dead. Triebel won prizes for her stunning performance in this mysterious and emotional drama – one of the best autobiographical stories about what it means to be a refugee.
