FULL SYNOPSIS

Anita Alexandra Kluge is a young East German woman who comes to West Germany in hopes of a better life in this social drama. She has trouble with the law when she steals and has more trouble adjusting to life in a new society. Anita becomes her employer's mistress, but she leaves when she is wrongly accused of an unrelated theft. She becomes a wandering gypsy, confused and unable to deal with either the communist regime or a free-market economy. This feature was the official German entry at the 1966 Venice Film Festival. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi
