About the film: It’s the start of the 1960s in the GDR: Sigrid, from Leipzig, falls in love with Lucien, a student from Togo, and gets pregnant. But she’s married to Armin, and they already have a son together. The couple let their dark-skinned daughter believe that her skin colour is a coincidence and not significant, until she discovers the truth by chance as a teenager. Decades later, long after she has met her biological father's family in Togo, she reconstructs her family history in a film as both protagonist and author.
