Jazz singer Sophie (Katja Riemann) receives an urgent phone call from her father, Paul Kromberger (Matthias Habich). He wants to show her a photo on an American newspaper website - the photo of a woman who bears an astonishing and inexplicable resemblance to his recently deceased wife, Sophie's mother. Paul asks his daughter to find the woman in the picture - Caterina Fabiani (Barbara Sukowa) a celebrated opera singer. Despite her misgivings, to please her father, Sophie reluctantly agrees. As she is travelling to New York, she cannot possibly imagine the revelations that await her - about her mother, her father, herself... A breathless, masterfully orchestrated thriller about family secrets from Margarethe von Trotta (Golden Lion Winner and director of Hannah Arendt).
