Plot Summary
After the death of her father, Hannah (Maria Schrader) observes her widowed mother, Ruth (Jutta Lampe), partaking in Orthodox Jewish mourning rituals. Ruth refuses to answer Hannah's questions about why she's doing this, so Hannah goes to Germany to learn about her parents' past during World War II. She meets the elderly Lena (Doris Schade), who tells Hannah about Ruth's role in the Rosenstrasse protest of 1943, which aimed to free Jewish husbands from jail and prevent their deportation.
