The life of Charlotte von Mahlsdorf (aka Lothar Berfelde), a transvestite who survived the Nazis, the repressive East German regime, and neo-Nazi attacks after German reunification. He lived, as he puts it, like a 19th-century Hausfrau. The film portrays Charlottes steadfastness and courage in the face of incomprehension and hostility.
