Emma Küsters (Mira) is hounded by the press when her factory-worker husband goes murderously berserk after learning of impending mass redundancies. Lonely, traumatised and desperate to clear her husband’s name, she is easy prey for a suave communist couple who offer their support. Fassbinder lashes out in every direction in this fearless critique of a pervasively exploitative society.
