Synopsis

Luise Schilling is young, inquisitive and has a promising future ahead of her. At the beginning of the turbulent twenties, she arrives at Weimar's Bauhaus University. She takes classes with professors such as Gropius and Kandinsky and throws herself into the dreams and ideas of her epoch. Luise has ambitions of achieving a great deal in life - but little of it has to do with paying homage to great men.

First, she falls in love with the dazzling art student Jakob, then with the politicised graphic artist, Hermann. But these are just two of the figures she meets during a heady period. From technology to art, communism to the avant-garde, populism to the youth movement, Luise encounters the social utopias that still shape us to the present day. As if looking at the headlines of today's newspapers, what becomes clear is that the greater fight for freedom never stops at our own individual lives.
