Bitterfeld, GDR, spring 1989. Chemical factory worker Gisela (Astrid Meyerfeldt) – three children from three different fathers, an ex-boyfriend (Oliver Korittke) and a girlfriend preparing to head for the West – won’t be deterred: she is determined to use this year’s InternationalWomen’s Day celebrations on March 8th as the opportunity for a beauty contest. Her workmates love the idea, but the local party functionaries and cultural committee are appalled at the thought. The local vicar (Hannes Jaenicke) is Gisela’s only ally, albeit an unwitting one. A nostalgic comedy about life in Eastern Germany before the Wall came down.
