Introduction by Barton Byg, professor of film and German Studies at UMass Amherst and founder of the DEFA Film Library.

After a party in Karsten’s apartment, everybody leaves except Anna. Karsten approaches this mysterious woman. How could he have known, that in a moment of weakness, his well-established life would spiral out of control and turn into a disaster?

In this small provincial German town, disappointment soon fuels anger, justice hides behind hypocrisy, and evil gradually unfolds.
