This gentle and moving German romance centers on the star-crossed affair between a lonely, daydreamy factory worker from East Berlin and a Polish smuggler. Ramona was absently riding the bus one day when Andrzej, a total strange sits beside her and gives her a big kiss right on the lips. Before that fateful encounter, Ramona's life revolved around working in a lipstick factory by day and spying upon her neighbors by night. Though Andrzej only kissed her to shake off some pursuing cops, electricity passed between them. Shortly thereafter, he and Ramona begin an affair that blossoms into a great romance, at least for Ramona who believes that Andrzej really wants to commit to her. It is only after she gets pregnant that the sad truth comes out, a truth that leads first to tragedy and then renewal for Ramona.
