Tough young piano prodigy Jenny is serving time in a women's prison in Luckau, Germany. She meets her match in the elderly Traude, a Prussian woman who has been teaching piano to the inmates since World War II. But Traude's near-obsessive attachment to Jenny goes far beyond musical professionalism, becoming something much more fervid and intense. An upcoming pianist's competition is an opportunity not to be missed, and the pair plot a daring escape.
