Based on a true story. Pomßen. Saxony, 1937. Richard and Lina Kretschkopf are a young peasant couple living in a small house in the middle of German hills. Richard’s desire to have a child has grown to the point to become an obsession, especially after an event that has deeply affected him: the first Lina’s pregnancy ended up tragically. Lina appears anguished by increasingly obsessive and almost morbid behaviour of her husband, who began to build a cradle for their son that was not even conceived yet. Lina eventually learns that she is pregnant again: for Richard a new wait filled with hope begins. It will only be a bitter delusion that will put one of the most terrible events in history in motion.
