About the film:
In this melodramatic tale, the well-made plans of a career-obsessed woman are derailed when she sets her sights on a young man who is plainly not very interested in her. In the story, Katherina is an ambitious reporter for German television, and her Yugoslavian family background makes her a natural to… cover stories in that country. While preparing a story on children with dual nationalities, she encounters Peter, a German lad who is researching his father’s war record to see if he was guilty or innocent of war crimes. She brings Peter to see her family, and later her wooing efforts finally seem to bring her some promise of a relationship. (Clarke Fountain, Rovi)
