Yella decides to leave her small town for a promising job and new life, leaving behind her failed marriage and broken dreams. Nothing can stop her; not even a freak car accident with her psychotic ex-husband on the day of her departure. After a humiliating professional setback, the winds change for pretty Yella when young executive Philipp hires her as his assistant. But despite her initial successes, her past comes back to haunt her. Her new life appears too good to be real. Christian Petzold delivers a fascinating drama, inspired by the 1962 film classic Carnival of Souls, starring Nina Hoss, who received the Berlinale Silver Bear for her performance.
