Just like many other senior citizens in Germany, Petra receives a miserable early retirement benefit. After paying rent and utilities, she is left with about 100 euros a month for food and other expenses, hardly enough to survive in such an expensive city as Hamburg. But Petra refuses to accept such circumstances – she belongs to a new generation of “seniors” who believe that life does not end with old age. She sees early retirement as the beginning of a new chapter in life, decides to leave everything behind and move to Eastern Europe.

Intimna mapa satkana od posledica traume seksualnog zlostavljanja iz perspektiva nekoliko žrtava i zločinaca. Film otkriva kompleksne reakcije na traumu, reakciju društva na žrtve i na silovatelje, te nudi putanju ka zaceljenju, uprkos stigmi vezanoj za najčešće prećutane zločine.

The film reveals complex reactions to trauma, society’s response to victims and rapists, and offers a path to healing, despite the stigma associated with the crimes that remain largely unspoken.
