Summary

Tres hermanas en Berlín. Unas galerías de moda. Una promesa de futuro.

Berlín, mayo de 1945: es la hora cero, la ciudad está en ruinas, así como las almas de sus gentes. Los grandes almacenes Thalheim am Ku'damm también han quedado completamente destruidos. Rike, Silvie y Florentine, las tres hermanas herederas del negocio, contemplan aterradas y petrificadas las ruinas del orgullo familiar. Pero Rike no está dispuesta a que su vida transcurra entre los escombros. Ella tiene un proyecto y está dispuesta a dejarse la piel para llevarlo adelante: reconstruir los grandes almacenes y darle color al triste Berlín de la posguerra con telas refinadas, colores pastel y las últimas creaciones de moda. Después de la reforma monetaria, la gente empieza a tener ganas de consumir, de participar de lo que parece un nuevo milagro económico, de olvidar la guerra y la miseria. Sin embargo, los nuevos tiempos arrastran problemas del pasado y cuando un oscuro secreto parece arrojar una luz nada gloriosa sobre las galerías de moda y su historia, las tres hermanas se darán cuenta de que el pasado sigue muy vivo.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Three sisters in Berlin. Some fashion galleries. One promise for the future.

 
Berlin, May 1945: it is zero hour, the city is in ruins, as are the souls of its people. The Thalheim am Ku'damm department store has been completely destroyed. Rike, Silvie and Florentine, the three sisters who inherited the business, stare in horror and petrified at the ruins of what was once the pride of the family. But Rike is unwilling to live amongst the rubble. She has a project in mind and is ready to do whatever it takes to carry it out: to rebuild the department store and bring some color to a sad post-war Berlin with refined fabrics, pastel colors, and the latest fashion creations.
 
After the currency reform, people began to feel like spending money again and take part in what seemed like a new economic miracle; as they also longed to forget the war and all its misery. However, the new times still dragged problems from the past, and when a dark secret seems to cast a shadow on the fashion galleries and their history, the three sisters will realize that the past is still very much alive.
