Tamara Danz (1952-96) was East Germany’s answer to Janis Joplin and Tina Turner. The charismatic and rebellious lead singer of the rock band Silly was an icon for a whole generation of young people. This film chronicles a remarkable period in the history of East German rock with concert clips, rarely shown archival material and moving interviews.
