A Woman in Berlin

April 1945 – German women are victims of rape – one of them is the beautiful Anonyma (Ms. Hoss), who, in her desperation and will to survive, decides to look for an officer who can protect her. She meets Russian officer Andrej (Evgeny Sidikhin) with whom she develops a complex and symbiotic relationship that forces them to remain enemies until the bitter end. Anonyma is one of the few surviving women to ever have reported on a subject that is still taboo, and which still occurs in wars around the world. [Synopsis courtesy of Strand Releasing]
