Synopsis

On a warm summer day in Berlin, Helena is hit by a truck while crossing the street. She awakens to the loving face of her husband Joachim. In addition to a few broken bones, she realizes she can't remember anything about the accident, or even the last few years leading up to it. Retrograde amnesia the doctors call it, and assure her that with time, she should regain her memory. At loose ends after another botched relationship, Joachim doesn'tintend to lie to his estranged wife, Helena. But when he realizes that she doesn't remember their separation, he can't bring himself to tellher. So he does what any rational man would do: he takes her home and pretends they were never apart. As the lies accumulate, Helena senses something isn't quite rightathat her husband is hiding something. When the outside world encroaches, Helena must face an unsettling truth and decide what the past will mean for their future. Is the past binding, orcanshego back and change what went wrong in their relationship? And if given the chance, would she even want to?
