My Mother, a War and Me

Meine Mutter, ein Krieg und ich

Germany, 2014


1942, and a spectacular wartime birth in the depths of winter: a young russian nurse unexpectedly goes into labour and, all alone and in freezing temperatures, gives birth to her daughter Tamara in a field on the banks of the Volga.
