Olga is a successful lawyer in Vienna when her mother Maria suddenly falls into a coma. While Maria is between life and death, Olga comes across a deliberately withheld secret. Her increasingly passionate investigation takes her back to the war-torn Europe of the 50s; where, at the end of her journey she discovers herself: a woman she never knew before. The film discusses the dramatic situations originating from identity crises with feminist sensitivity in unusual situations, the never-healing wounds caused by the wars of a shattered Europe, and the liberating powers coming from unveiling lies and suppressions.
