Brief synopsis

The large-scale American military presence in West Germany during the early 1950s opens up a new world, paving the way for individual freedom, the permissive society and rampant capitalism in Germany. This development in the fictitious town of Kaltenstein is the setting for the powerful story of friendship between two young women as they strive to create lives for themselves during a time of great change, repeatedly coming into conflict with the old order: the conservative forces of politics, the Church and society. Confronted with the temptations of the New World the two women, who could hardly be more different as individuals, develop in opposite directions, putting a huge strain on their intense friendship.
