Berlin 1931. Out of desperation, a jobless young man jumps from a window. Anni, his sister and the only member of the family still having a job, becomes pregnant. The family gets evicted. Who can change the world in these times of crisis? Anni’s friend Gerda provides a revolutionary answer – and Krampf’s camera interprets the scenes in an extraordinary way.
