Weimar, Germany 1921: According to her father, the life of 20-year-old Lotte Brendel seems to be a set affair as a wife and mother at the side of a man who is to take over his parents' carpentry business.  However, and against the will of her family, the unconventional and artistically talented Lotte joins a group of young artists, applies to the Bauhaus and is accepted. The Weimar Bauhaus under the direction of the visionary Walter Gropius aims not only to combine art and craftsmanship, but also to accommodate the "New Man." In Bauhäusler Paul Seligmann, Lotte finds a supporter and her great love. She is given the opportunity to complete her studies as a woman with equal rights guided by world-famous artists such as Lyonel Feininger, Johannes Itten, Vasily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, and Oskar Schlemmer. But the break with her family, questions of equality and political pressure on the Bauhaus create challenges.
