Cinematic Responses to RAF - Terrorism

Germany, 1968: The priest's daughters Marianne and Juliane both fight for changes in society, like making abortion legal. However their means are totally different: while one is committed as a reporter, the other joins a terroristic organization. After Marianne is caught by the police and put into isolation jail, Juliane remains as her last connection to the rest of the world. Although she doesn't accept her sister's arguments, Juliane keeps on helping her sister and begins to question the way Marianne is treated.


This film will be shown with English subtitles.
