Synopsis
The film tells the story of Chancellor Merkel’s unexpected rise to power – from an East German physicist to the most powerful woman in the world. We look at her biography from when she entered the political stage in 1989 to the present. A second focus is put on the refugee crisis and establishes the connection between Merkel’s actions and her biography. Political and personal companions who have witnessed the chancellor throughout the years comment on her childhood in East Germany, her first political steps, her rise to the top, her eventful chancellorship, and the current political situation.
Angela Merkel herself reflects in an exclusive interview on her life, her unexpected and unprecedented career, the refugee crisis, and finally on herself as a politician, a motivator, or a listener.
