Europe 1990. The Berlin Wall has just crumbled. Katrine is a Norwegian “war child,” raised in East Germany, but living in Norway for the past 20 years. She enjoys a happy life with her mother, her husband, daughter and granddaughter. When a lawyer asks Katrine and her mother to testify in a trial against the Norwegian state on behalf of the war children, she resists. Gradually, a web of concealment and secrets is revealed, truths that shake the family to its core.

This suspense drama addresses an important and somewhat taboo topic in Norwegian history: the way Norwegian women who had relationships with German occupation soldiers were treated by their country after World War II, and what happened to them under the Stasi regime in the former East Germany. With iconic Norwegian actress Liv Ullmann as Katrine’s mother. A PSIFF selection last year, Two Lives has been selected as this year’s German contender for the Academy Awards®.
