Synopsis

A portrait of an author at the end of her life and career, based on the life of German writer Gisela Elsner. Hanna Flanders is a writer living in Munich who travels to Berlin just as the Berlin Wall is coming down. An admirer of East Germany and Communism, Hanna is saddened by the fall, and upset at the casual attitude her East German friends take towards their former society. Returning to Munich, Hanna encounters her former husband along the way and the two have a short liaison. Still unhappy and drinking heavily, Hanna arrives home and eventually commits suicide.
