Berlin, 1943: Upper-class widow Martha Liebermann can’t imagine leaving her beloved
homeland at age 85, but as a Jew, her only choice is to flee or wait to be deported
to a concentration camp. Her reputation and the valuable paintings of her world-famous
husband, Max Liebermann, still provide protection, but time is running out. Caught
between a high-level resistance group on one side and an ambitious Gestapo commissioner
on the other, Frau Liebermann starts questioning whether she can even trust her faithful
and long-time housekeeper. An outstanding portrait of a truly remarkable woman, Lieberman’s
true story is portrayed with dignity and humanity by Thekla Carola Wied.
