Johanna and Dr. Frankl
In 1948, in the aftermath of the Second World War, Vienna is in ruins. Food is scarce and jobs are hard to find. Sixteen-year-old Johanna aspires to work as a waitress in a café; she has to support her mother, who has been depressed since her father died at the front. When she is fired, the world falls apart. However, that same day, a fortuitous encounter with a psychiatrist who suffered Nazi persecution and a young American who interviews her for an article will help her find the motivation to live.
