FULL SYNOPSIS

Margarethe Von Trotta, who later became a well-known film director herself, stars in this film which is directed by her husband Volker Schlondorff. It tells the story of a woman whose divorce has just been finalized. At first, she is joyful and feels very free, but gradually the realities of trying to earn her living in what is still a man's world, and the gritty custody battle for her son, begin to wear her down. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
