Little Angel (Engelchen)

Little Angel

Little Angel is the nick name of Ramona Schneider, a hypersensitive woman with an almost compulsive fixation on the dark side of life. She leads an inconspicuous life near Berlin's Ostkreuz train station where, through a grotesque coincidence, she meets and falls in love with Andrzej, a Pole who sells cigarettes on the black market. Ramona experiences an inevitable tragic descent from the heights of her unexpected happiness.
