In East Germany in 1980, as punishment for filing a request to move to West Germany, Barbara has been forced by the Stasi to leave her prestigious job in Berlin and move to a small hospital in a rural backwater. Monitored constantly by the Stasi, Barbara makes plans for her escape and trusts no-one. She believes her kindly boss Reiser to be a Stasi informant, but the two form a bond as they treat a young woman admitted to the hospital with meningitis, and Barbara begins to reassess her priorities.
