Hans is always in and out of prison. His only crime? He’s a gay man living in post-war Germany, where homosexuality was a prisonable offence until 1994. The prison system slowly destroys his desire for freedom. Throughout it all, the only steady human relationship that he has is his long-term cell-mate, Viktor, a convicted murderer. What starts as revulsion grows into something resembling love, as the desire for human connection transcends prejudice.
