In the summer of 1917, with the permission of the German Emperor, Lenin traveled by train to Saint Petersburg, generating the spark that spread the October Revolution. In a way, the train journey made a mark in the transited countries. In 1918, Karl Liebknecht tried to proclaim the birth of the free German Socialist Republic from the balcony of the Berlin Palace. History is dominated by men. 100 years later, the Argentine director Lola Arias invites a group of women aged between 10 and 84 years old, to tell stories about communism. Together, they reconstruct their lives and more specifically the one of Salomea Genin. As a daughter of a Jewish family, Salomea Genin was obliged to flee from the National Socialist regime finding shelter in Australia, where she was inspired by the communist dream and decided to support the building of a socialist state in Germany. Salomea worked for the Stasi before realising that the German Democratic Republic became a police state.
