SynopsisThe rediscovery of an author of the century: Helga Schubert. Awarded the Ingeborg Bachmann Prize at her second attempt at the age of 80. Author, poet, chronicler.
Somewhere in the nowhere between Schwerin and Wismar, 83-year-old Helga Schubert lives, cares for her 95-year-old ailing husband, former psychology professor and painter Johannes Helm, and writes her stories every day, as she has done for the past decades.
From here she sets out, as often as possible, for readings, lectures and receptions, because since winning the Bachmann Prize in the first Corona Summer in 2020 she has once again become a popular public figure.
