In 1942, to flee the Nazi regime, Ruth moves to New York and sets up a life with her daughter, Liz, and her son, Aaron. Her boyfriend, Richard hadn’t fared so well in Berlin and Ruth finds out later that he had died. She returns to her homeland and begins to reminisce about the days that she had to flee, and her lover from around that time. Max, who was the father of her daughter Ruth, was supposed to meet up with her so that they could flee together, but at the meeting point, Max never showed up, and Ruth had never found out why. Evidence begins to pile up, and the truth is not what she expected. Johanna Christine Gehlen has a lot of skimpy clothing scenes, but in the nudity department, she’s a bit scant. A little bit of nipple can be seen in a very dark bedroom scene, as well as some sideboob when things are a little lighter. She does, however show her bare butt as she gets out of bed. Die Leibenden vom Alexanderplatz (2001) could use a little bit more physical leiben.
