Synopsis:

Winner of Best Director at the Berlin Film Festival 2012, this slow-burning Cold War drama follows a doctor torn between the West, where her lover has emigrated, and her obligations in the East.

Banished from Berlin for trying to obtain a travel visa, Barbara (Nina Hoss) winds up practicing medicine in an East German village. While her partner plans her escape via the Baltic Sea, she grows fond of Andre (Ronald Zehrfeld), the seemingly good-natured boss at her new clinic.
