Christa is a young mother who robs a bank to pay for her daughter’s day-care. On the run, she is pursued by the police and, more ambiguously, by Lena, the young woman who was her hostage in the raid.

MUBI's take

Radicalism is not only an anarchic bank heist—for Margarethe von Trotta, it is hospitality and intimacy too. Inspired by a feminist movement that set up antiauthoritarian childcare centers in West Germany, the director forges a remarkable drama from leftist struggle and unlikely solidarity.
