A woman forges her own path in life. And pays the price.
Joni grows up in the provincial confines of the postwar years. As a young diplomat’s wife, she enters the political arena of East Berlin. She maintains close contact with her children who live with their father while she travels the world as a government advisor. While Joni tries to fulfil her duties as a wife and mother, her unconventional life is suddenly the focus of public attention. She is forced to realise that no matter how independent she is as a woman, her existence is fragile.
Beatrix tells the gripping story of a headstrong, nonconformist woman who constantly has to walk the tightrope between her independence and the expectations of those around her.
