Clara has made it: she has got away from her native provincial East Germany, now living an independent life in Berlin, teaching philosophy while finishing her Ph. D. Between her professional ambitions, an affair with one of her students and her demanding friendship with her thesis advisor Margot, she barely has time for her family. When Clara visits her mother for a weekend with her 15-year-old daughter Emma, she finds herself confronted with her ideal of an unfettered, self-determined life and the price she must pay for it.

Rehana, an assistant professor at a medical college, strains to combine her complex roles as a teacher, doctor, sister, daughter, and mother. Keeping the balance between the demands of work and family life has become a daily struggle. One evening, she witnesses a crying student storming out of a professor’s office. Deeply touched by this event and the actions leading up to it, Rehana’s life starts to spiral out of control. She gradually descends into obsession, seeking retribution, just as she receives a complaint from the school about her 6-year-old daughter’s unusual behavior... Rehana refuses to accept the madness of the patriarchal society she lives in. She will put everything at stake to fight for justice - for her student, her daughter, but also for herself.
