Synopsis

Felice is living a dangerous life: in the middle of World War II Berlin she is a Jew and a lesbian, working undercover at a Nazi newspaper where she finds information to take to the Jewish underground. One day she meets Lilly, her lover Ilse's employer, and falls in love with this bourgeois, Nazi-supporting hausfrau. Their affair is as intense as it is dangerous, with Felice in constant danger of discovery. In their own ways, each woman challenges what is expected of her.
