Inspired by real events and spanning three eras of German history, this is the story of a young art student Kurt who falls in love with fellow student, Ellie. Ellie’s father, Professor Seeband, a famous doctor, is dismayed at his daughter’s choice of boyfriend, and vows to destroy the relationship. What neither of them knows is that their lives are already connected through a terrible crime Seeband committed decades ago. From Academy award winner Florian Henckel von Dommersmarck, writer/director of The Lives of Others.
