Experiencing Interruptions?

Traveling on one leg

In 1985, in Communist Romania, the thirty year-old Irene falls deeply in love with a German, Franz. They have a short and intense romance. When Franz leaves Romania, Irene decides to follow him to Berlin to be with him. After her arrival, Irene gradually comes to realise that Franz no longer wants to be with her. She is sucked into a spiral of melancholy and nostalgia for her lost love and distant homeland.
