Future film and TV director Ivan Desny stars in the German melodrama No Way Back. Desny plays Mischa, a Russian officer who is one of thousands of troops pouring into Berlin at the end of WW II. During the Soviet occupation of the German capitol, Mischa falls in love with local girl Anna (Ruth Niehaus). When he is called back to Russia, Mischa loses contact with the girl. Seven years later, he returns to Berlin, searching for the elusive Anna. His quest leads to a number of life-threatening situations for both parties, fomented by the political intrigues of the postwar era. The winner of the German equivalent of the Academy Award, No Way Back was originally released as Weg Ohne Umkehr.
