"I do not know what is happening to me. This war is unsettling me »reveals, at one point of Shakespeare in Berlin, Martin, one of its protagonists. The war it refers to is World War II; that of the concentration camps and the Holocaust. The fear of Hitler. The one that made Germany the most powerful in the beginning and the shame of Europe in its end.
It is 1933 on stage. The war has not yet exploded and happiness envelops the world of German cinema; To the couple's universe. The sound has been installed in the films of the time and Marlene Dietrich begins to shine in the sky of the celluloid, although the Nazi shadow also begins to get big on the industry and begins to seize it gradually.
Martín and Elsa have a friend of Jewish descent, Leo, also an actor, with whom they share their passion and afternoons at UFA studios, theater and Berlin cabarets ... Until bombs start to fall on Europe and identities They begin to dilute. «To be or not to be ... That is the dilemma. What is better for the soul? To suffer insults from Fortuna, blows, darts, or get up in arms against the ocean of evil and oppose it and so cease? Die, sleep ... »Stay on the German side or rebel. That is the question.
From 1933 to 1946 Shakespeare in Berlin allows the public to observe a few meters away how the bombs fall on the lives and the relationship of these three friends and deteriorate them. Especially since one night an event takes place that will definitely mark the fate of each one of them.
