West Germany in the fifties, Michael is a 15-year young boy from an upper-class family who meets the sensual, poor, and twice as old, train conductor Hanna. It’s a story about forbidden love, laws and morals, shame and pride, angst and truthfulness. After the Second World War the whole planet, and especially Germany, wanted to forget the atrocities and the horror but however hard we all tried to act as if they didn’t happen they will forever be true. Whatever is hidden will eventually be found.
