Fifty kilometres away, a woman sits at her gravestone; she has already lived five years past the date of death that is engraved on her stone. The National Socialist regime turned them into perpetrators and into victims. With the fall of Hitler, he has also fallen. She, on the other hand, had to go into a work camp for 6 years.
The film shows two very humorous, but broken people, who witnessed the disappearance of their own culture. Their national pride forbade them from "mixing" with other people. Now both of them are old, alone, and they want to die. The best thing would be to simply "disappear" from the world. Only at the end of their lives, they are finally willing to retell the tragic experiences of their beings.
