Where Hands Touch
We live here a German love story and perhaps that story began in time of war and destruction. That story began with 15-year-old Lina, the daughter of a white German mother and a black father. It seems that Lena is still living in fear because of the color of her skin, where it is quite different later because of love. Over time, Lena meets Lutz, the son of a senior SS officer and member of Hitler's youth, where it seems that there will be love and that both fall in love immobile, putting their lives in danger dramatically and impact during that difficult period.
