Nelly (Nina Hoss) is a German woman who survived the horrors of a WWII concentration camp but is left disfigured in this drama directed by Christian Petzold who previously directed Hoss in Barbara. Nelly sets out amidst the aftermath of postwar Berlin to see if she can locate her husband, Johnny (Ronald Zehrfield) and finds him working at a cabaret club called Phoenix. Her friend Lene (Nina Kunzendorf) urges her to leave Johnny and start a new life with her in Palestine but Nelly stays with Johnny and as their relationship unfolds she learns that he may have betrayed her to the Nazis. ~ Jennifer Lackman
