The former terrorists Clara and Hans have lived underground with their 15-year-old daughter Jeanne for years. Somewhere in Portugal they manage to establish a quasi-legal identity until one inattentive moment causes everything to collapse.
On the run again, they end up in Germany. In the meantime, Jeanne has fallen in love and refuses to sacrifice this little piece of normality to her parents. Clara and Hans are planning a bank robbery to make a living. They have no idea that the police is already close on their heels.

Before the film screening, Mira Adoumier (filmmaker Beirut/Berlin) will give a short lecture about the Berlin School.
