SynopsisIn TIME WILL TELL, we return to some of the protagonists from my earlier films of the ‘Leipzig Series’. During the political upheaval in late-1989/early-1990, Isabel, Jenny and Sven were teenagers of fourteen and fifteen and still attending school. The dramatic social changes following the collapse of East Germany hit them head on during their most formative years. The protagonists from my films ‘Last Year Titanic’ (1990), ‘Faith, Love, Hope’ (1994), and ‘The Big Wide World’ (1997) are now in their late-30s. They’ve been living in the Federal Republic of Germany longer than they lived in East Germany. The paths their lives have taken could hardly be much different.
Our new film revolves around these three protagonists and their lives today, twenty-five years after the first film: ISABEL the former punk is now a liquidator. JENNY is on a quest to unravel her family’s ill-fated history. SVEN is struggling through life unemployed.
