Nicki and Freddy making music

It’s 1957 in Berlin when Monika, who is in the final stages of pregnancy, reaches the apartment of the Schöllacks. She has nowhere to live and wants to take refuge in her former home, but her mother Caterina turns her away. Unmarried and single, Monika is harshly judged in hospital as well. When she awakes from the delirium of a childbed fever, she finds that Caterina has made arrangements for her new-born daughter Dorli, who is staying with foster parents – Monika’s sister Helga and her husband Wolfgang.
