Cast

Young Gustav longs for freedom, he criticises the system of the German Democratic Republic. He is arrested as a system enemy. While his father is helpless and desperate, his confused grandmother goes to visit Gustav in prison. Her visit seems suspicious to the officers. Gustav is mistreated, he is transferred to the prison’s hospital ward with severe injuries and meets the sweet, kind nurse Pauline.

“I became aware that in the social collective, a generation’s communications about emotions, moods and atmospheres are conserved in music, which is an immense cultural-historic reservoir for that which language and speech cannot express.” (Thomas Desi)
