Lotti Huber, the 77-year-old singer, dancer and actress bursting with the courage to live, tells of her eventful life in this semi-documenary film. As a Jew, Lotti Huber was in a concentration camp during the Nazi regime. After she was ransomed, she emigrated to Palestine, Egypt, Cyprus and London, among other places. She did not return to Germany until the 1960s. Lotti Huber was discovered by Rosa von Praunheim when she was already 70 years old. "Praunheim's fictional documentaries, or documenting fictions, are characterized on the one hand by a startlingly self-deprecating sincerity, and on the other by a deeply affectionate description of the people of his worlds."
