A group of Anglo-American expatriates get together to celebrate friendship and talk about life, art, feminism, religion, politics, philosophy, prejudice, etc. Bessie is an employee of an American technology company in Berlin. She is a feminist and lives with Melody, a graphic designer. Both are activists for LGBTQ and gender equality. They are very close friends with the poet Adley who also actively campaigns against racism, misogynism and who is a passionate defender of human rights. Blake, a neurologist, is also part of the circle of friends. Blake is dissatisfied with his job and lifestyle.
The Year of the Soul is a film about friendship and depicts the anxiety and dilemmas of our times focused on human rights issues. (Werner Schumann)
