Winter 1968.  Historian Dr. Dallow is released from prison.  He is still trying to cope with and understand why he was put behind bars for 21 months for defamation of the state.  His supposed "crime:"  for five minutes, he accompanied a cabaret chanson on the piano.  The film shows what "ordinary socialism" was like, letting the audience feel the threat under which the people in the GDR had to live over many years.
