A disfigured Holocaust survivor sets out to determine if the man she loved betrayed her trust.

Singer Nelly Lenz returns to Berlin terribly disfigured having survived the concentration camps. After her recovery from extensive plastic surger, refusing to believe that her estranged husband Johnny could have betrayed her to the Nazis, she resolved to find him in the hope he will still recognise her even though others no longer can.

DE, 2014, 94 min., Dir. Christian Petzold
