Gefangen in Afrika

The true story of a woman who went through hell in Africa

A small town in the late 1960s: Her childhood is hell – the post-war years leave their mark on Gerti Bruns, who has scarcely a chance to have any education. She runs away from home when she is thirteen, only then to be exploited as an unpaid maid. Again she flees, this time to what seems like paradise: the good-looking Leo Wolf at last gives her a life in safety and affluence.
Then, however, Leo goes to the political hot spot of South-West Africa, where apartheid rules and civil war is looming. He doesn't rest until Gerti finally gives in and joins him with their two sons. This is the biggest trap of her life, and the only way Gerti can escape is by fleeing again…
