After her father dies, Hannah Weinstein (Maria Schrader) notices that her mother, Ruth (Jutte Lampe), is acting very strangely. Is Ruth's behavior brought on by her understandable grief at the loss of her husband, or does the suffering spring from something older, something repressed? As her mother's troubled childhood is revealed, Hannah realizes how little she ever really knew about the woman closest to her. Margarethe von Trotta directs.
