Synopsis

 One person’s desire for freedom often becomes another person’s chains.

 

Nora leaves her husband and children without saying goodbye. Driven by an irresistible force she cannot ignore, she randomly hitchhikes to Bratislava. Hiding her identity, she changes her appearance and befriends a young Slovakian stripper Etela and her husband Tamas, a cook.

While Nora struggles to build a new life, her German family in Berlin is left completely uncertain of her fate. The radical nature of her departure appears to be both traumatic and an opportunity.

Jan Speckenbach’s film Freedom raises some fundamental questions: What  is freedom worth? What is the difference between living and surviving? Is it possible to erase your old life and to become someone else without losing yourself in the process? And above all – actually, what is freedom?
