In The School for Wives the aging Arnolphe picks a 4 years old little girl, Agnes and puts her in a nunnery. He wants her to grow up in complete ignorance and darkness - thus he wants to raise himself a dumb and obedient wife. Years later, when Agnes is a young woman, her coincidental encounter with a stranger derails Arnolphe’s accurate plan and turns the life of their upside down.
Terror, the latest phenomenon of German theatre, tells the story of Lars Koch, fighter pilot. A terrorist hijacks a Lufthansa flight from Berlin to Munich and targets a football stadium full of people. Koch has to decide: does he shoot the airplane with 164 people on board to save the 70,000 in the stadium? Weeks later he has to defend his decision before court.
