City of Women

It is 1943, the height of the Second World War, and Berlin has become a city of women. With her husband serving on the Eastern Front, Sigrid Schroeder is, for all intents and purposes, the model soldier’s wife. But behind this façade is an entirely different Sigrid, a Sigrid who dreams of her former Jewish lover, who is now lost in the chaos of the war.

Sigrid's tedious existence is turned upside down when she finds herself hiding a mother and her two young daughters—who she believes might be her lover’s family—and she must make choices that could cost her everything.
