Synopsis
A woman dresses in men's clothes to find work. This happened in the years 1919 to 1931. For twelve years, no one noticed that the caring family father Joseph Einsmann was actually a woman called Maria.
After First World War, Maria was fired from her job. Together with her friend Helene, she went to Mainz for a new start. In her luggage was her husband's suit, she had taken with her after separating. When the two women found his papers in the jacket, they came up with the idea of Maria taking Joseph's identity. This made it easier for them to find a well-paid job and a place to live. They presented themselves as a married couple, and when Helene then had two children, Maria took on the role as a father.
