"After a breakdown, Rita returns to her childhood village. As she recovers, she remembers the past two years: here love for the chemist Manfred, ten years her senior; his enthusiasm about his new chemical process, which turned to bitter disappointment in the face of rejection; his escape to West Berlin a few weeks before the Wall was built; and his hope that she would follow him.
