Ten days in the life of socialist politician Clara Zetkin. In August 1932, she is summoned from Archangelskoje near Moskow to open the new legislative session because at seventy-five, she is the oldest representative in the German Reichstag. Although she is ill and almost blind, she see this as her chance to make her voice heard amid the growing Nazi influence in Germany.
The news gets out that Zetkin is coming to Berlin, and she remains determined in spite of repeated threats published in fascist newspapers. Her journey to the Reichstag becomes a demonstration of resistance witnessed by thousands of Berliners.
