Somewhere in Ger(wo)many, a radical female 'army of lovers' is preparing itself for a final revolution against patriarchy. But then of all people a young soldier appears, seeking refuge at this feminist convent. This brings their strict superintendent on the scene and big mother' is not amused. But one question remains: is it possible to have equality in a corrupt system? This film presents a merry, anarchic squad of protagonists; political slogans roll as easily off their tongues as religious acclamations.
