Some nine years before the fall of the Wall: a Berlin doctor asks to leave the GDR. She is imprisoned and, after being released, is transferred in the summer of 1980 to a provincial hospital as a disciplinary measure. While her western lover prepares to flee across the Baltic Sea, Barbara works in the children's surgery section, often under observation and control. The feature film by Christian Petzold, winner of the Silver Bear for Best Director prize at the Berlinale in 2012, is a calm film, and unconditionally accurate about life in the GDR.

Una película ambientada en la República Democrática Alemana al final de la década de los 70. Ingrid Sommer abandona su trabajo en la fábrica y, con el seudónimo de "Sunny", intenta hacer carrera como cantante. Con la banda "Tornados", la joven recorre los centros culturales de provincia. Su vida no es demasiado alegre, aunque el amor por Ralph, un filósofo, promete a veces luz y calor. Una historia que oscila entre la melancolía y la esperanza, y, retrospectivamente, una película maravillosamente precisa y auténtica sobre la vida en la RDA.
