Five women, trapped by duty, fighting to survive…
Gentle Ingrid puts her life at risk when she tries to save her beloved daughter from her husband’s zealous beliefs.
Liesel, a lesbian, marries a gay man in hopes that they can feign the ideal marriage and, in doing so, protect each other from persecution.
Lovesick Greta, spurned by Liesel and lost, joins the Resistance, then disappears.
Gisela, a prostitute once contentedly in control of her own destiny, is incarcerated at Ravensbrück, where she must fight for a future she cannot yet imagine.
While Lore, craving a life beyond Berlin, wifedom and motherhood, steps down a dark and dangerous path.
Exploring themes of motherhood, identity, trauma, fascism, and survival, Fragments of a Woman offers a nuanced and heartbreaking exploration of what it meant to be a woman living under National Socialist rule.
