Set in Argentina, in the mid-fifties. Sulamit is the daughter of German-Jewish refugees. Friedrich is the son of German-Nazis refugees. Both children remain friends as Peron's Government falls in 1955 and the years of prison, torture and death in Argentina since 1976 to 1983. The children grow up, leave Argentina and go to Germany, both get involved in the political struggles of 1968. Friedrich, who always rejected the Nazi past of his father, becomes a left winged militant and decides to come back to Argentina to fight against the Military Government. The love of Sulamit for Friedrich survives all these years, though he dedicates more time to his political commitments than to his personal feelings. But those two are destined to get together after all these years of separation and disagreements, because their love is more powerful than anything else.
