Germany / 2020 / Documentary / 00:07:38min

After the fall of the Wall, Anna plunges into her exciting youth in Berlin until events from the past catch up with her. In the broadest sense, "Shtum" is about family secrets, the resulting silence, and the central question of whether some things prefer to remain hidden where they are or whether it makes sense to uncover them.
