Mother and daughter, both from the GDR: one experienced it, the other did not. Tamara was born in 1990. Like many of the post-reunification generation, she left her homeland and only comes to visit for her milestone birthday. But everything that seemed secure crumbles within a few days: Tamara (Linda Pöppel) and her mother Barbara (Lina Wendel) are left. The two struggle to maintain their relationship, which cannot be detached from the social developments in which the family was born, grew and disintegrated. Now Tamara must face what she has been running away from: her own history.
