1931 and Berlin is changing fast. Isherwood finds his old friends struggling with the hardships of poverty and the new restrictions that the Nazis impose on society.
The poignancy of those who are able to flee and those who have no choice but to stay is reinforced by Isherwood's dilemma: can he remain in the city he once loved as it falls totally under Hitler's power?
