Orig. title: Der Krieger und die Kaiserin (German)They meet for the first time, after a horrible accident, underneath a truck. The sad and angry Bodo (Benno F****rmann), a small time criminal who is always running, from himself as well as the law, and Sissi (Franka Potente), a shy, quiet nurse who works in in a psychiatric clinic. Bodo saves Sissi's life, which is literally hanging by a thread, then disappears without trace. Obsessed by the Incident, Sissi sets out on a mission to find the mysterious stranger, and to discover whether their paths crossed through simple blind chance or the intricate mechanisms of destiny itself.
