At the start of the Roaring Twenties, Luise arrives at the Bauhaus in Weimar. She wants to help create a new world. But she soon finds out that, even here, patriarchal structures are deeply rooted. It seems her dreams of a career as an architect are over, along with membership of the conspiratorial Bauhaus and her love for her brilliant fellow student Jakob. Hers is a perfectly fitting story for the political instability of the Weimar Republic.
