synopsis
1828 in the German port city of Bremen: Two very different women collide in an age that has no place for either of them. One strives for a career in law, at a time when women aren't even admitted to universities. The other has lived life outside the law and may now have to pay the tab. One of them needs to get her head together - while the other would do anything not to lose hers. --- Based on the true story of female serial killer Gesche Gottfried, and on original trial records.
