Acclaimed singer K.D. Lang makes an impressive acting debut in Percy Adlon’s (Bagdad Café) moving tale of two lost souls searching for love. Stunningly shot in north-western Alaska, the film sees Kothebue (Lang), an androgynous Alaskan pipeline worker, search out her family origins in a small town library. There she meets Roswitha (Rosel Zech), a quiet East German who retreated to Alaska after her husband was shot escaping across the Berlin Wall. As the women help each other come to terms with their pasts, Roswitha rejects a sexual relationship, despite the obvious desire developing between them.
