Plot Summary
When two women leave Geneva by car and head for Persia, they're searching for different things. Anthropologist Ella Maillart (Nina Petri) hopes to research an unknown nomad tribe, while author Annemarie Schwarzenbach (Jeanette Hain) looks to escape her heroin-riddled life and start fresh. But as they travel farther away from their past, they can't escape the present, or the stormy political climate. On the cross-continental trip, they explore themselves and the love they share for each other.
