History is decanted into objects and spaces: just as time robs us of memory, a political regime can rob us of our personal belongings and identity. Narrated in voice-over, the story transposes us through a retrospective investigation into the world of a couple divided by Nazi politics and separated as a result of the ongoing abuses that came with the Führer’s rise to power, two people deprived of their own ethnic conscience and family affiliations. After the unlawful arrest of her husband, the woman is left behind to fight against the Nazi State in a harrowing trial, turning into a helpless witness to an ontological demolition: her estate is sold au fur et à mesure, while all her valuables and family heirlooms end up decorating the homes of future war criminals. In a reality that threatens its inhabitants at every step, exile is the only means of escape. The film is a tremendously complex puzzle, merging together pieces of the present with traces of the past in a montage of rediscovered footage and archive documents, mixed with urban, quotidian images of present-day Berlin: office buildings, parks, antiques, glimpses of interiors and windows through which the cold morning wind whistles its way in.
