After spending four years in prison for killing his girlfriend, lumbering man-child Franz Biberkopf is finally released back into society.

Once the toast of Germany, Veronika Voss had allegedly been an intimate of Joseph Gobbels. Playing to an increasingly diminishing fan following, Veronika turns to drugs to cushion her against the cruelties of life. Her self-destruction is accelerated by her Dr. Katz, who plys Veronika with morphine in order to gain control of the actress's money and property. A well-meaning sportswriter tries to save Veronika from herself, sacrificing his own personal happiness - and the life of his girlfriend Cornelia Froeboess - in the process. Allegedly an amalgam of several true stories, Veronika Voss is the second of Fassbinder's "postwar trilogy" (the others are The Marriage of Maria Braun and Lola)

In einem Jahr mit 13 Monden: Elvira Weishaupt began life as Erwin. After growing up in an orphanage, Erwin was apprenticed to a butcher. As an adult, Erwin had fallen in love with Anton, the manager of the slaughterhouse where he worked. Anton's offhand comment "too bad you're not a girl" sent Erwin to Casablanca to become Elvira. Upon her return, however, Anton rejects Elvira. Convincing neither as a man nor as a woman, to others or to herself, she begins a journey into her past, revisiting old haunts, trying to re-or de-construct the person she's become. In a Year of 13 Moons is a distilled, brutal, unrelenting, deeply personal, and emotionally honest exposition into the human existential quest for love, acceptance, spiritual passion, and inclusion
