    • Jazz singer Sophie (Katja Riemann) receives an urgent phone call from her father, Paul Krombach (Matthias Habich). He wants to show her a photo on an American newspaper website - the photo of a woman who bears an astonishing and inexplicable resemblance to his recently deceased wife, Sophie’s mother.
      Paul asks his daughter to find the woman in the picture - Catarina Fabiani (Barbara Sukowa) a celebrated opera singer. Despite her misgivings, to please her father, Sophie reluctantly agrees.
      As she flies to New York, she cannot possibly imagine the revelations that await her - about her mother, her father, herself...
