In postwar Germany Hans is imprisoned again and again for being homosexual. Due to paragraph 175,
his desire for freedom is systematically destroyed. The one steady relationship in his life becomes his long time cell mate,
Viktor, a convicted murderer. What starts as revulsion grows into something called love.
