The rise of Angela Merkel to become Federal Chancellor is one of the most remarkable political carries of a woman. The insightful documentation portrays her youth in the DDR, and traces her life path from the fall of the Berlin wall to her gradual rise to become one of the Europes leading politicians in the last fourteen years.

Additionally many of her companions and political opponents get a chance to speak.
