In a small town, everyone has tried to forget what happened shortly after WWII. That is, until a stranger finds a book that Jadup gave to the young refugee, Boel, over 30 years ago. Painful memories of the period after the war and of Boel and her sudden disappearance begin to surface. Jadup, now the town's respected and popular mayor, remembers how he doubted and failed his friend Boel when rumors of a rape arose and some had blamed a Russian soldier. He hadn't even noticed that Boel had been in love with him. Jadup's confrontation with the past gives him a new, critical view of his current situation and surroundings. This subject matter was considered so controversial by GDR authorities that Jadup and Boel was banned and not released until 1988
