Worpswede, 1900. At their very first encounter, Paula Becker and Otto Modersohn sense a special bond. Their common passion for painting turns into a great love. After marrying, they lead a marriage far removed from the average mores of their times. A relationship full of vivid colors, with a wealth of contours and traces of struggle. Just like the painting of the young woman who courageously reaches out to life and goes down in art history as Paula Modersohn-Becker. Against all odds, she lives her vision of artistic self-determination and her romantic idea of marriage and love.
