Event Originally produced by DEFA Film Library in 1980.
Summary Germany, 1934: Hella Lindau and her fiancé Hermann Reimers are members of an anti-Nazi resistance group. When they are betrayed, Hella takes the blame and is sentenced to ten years in prison for high treason. Though Hermann is not allowed to marry her, his letters and visits keep her hope alive; after she spends years in solitary confinement, he also manages to get permission for her to live and work with other prisoners. Nine-and-a-half years into her sentence, the Gestapo wants to interrogate Hella again; when she is brought in for questioning, she sees that Hermann has been arrested... Two volumes of a planned autobiographical trilogy by Eva Lippold, German author and resistance fighter, inspired this internationally-acclaimed film. With its nuanced sense of character and exploration of the psychological experience of extreme duress, the directors re-framed East Germany's antifascist film genre. Nominated for a Gold Hugo Award at the **Chicago International Film Festival**.
