Notes

Synopsis : Summer in the GDR, 1980, Barbara, a young doctor, is exiled to a provincial hospital, seemingly punished for attempting to leave East Germany. Confined to a claustrophobic small town and under a constant veil of suspicion, she befriends no one, waiting patiently for the opportunity to resume her mission.

When her new boss appears to confide in Barbara, she is thrown. Hers is a life in which the fear of surveillance is embedded in all personal relationships, and she doesn't know who to trust. Why has he covered for her and one of her patients? Torn between her instinct and her duty, the characterstically hyper-controlled Barbara begins to lose her grip on herself, her obligations and her heart. (Synopsis taken from DVD back cover information).

This film contains infrequent moderate sex references.
