Adina grew up as the last teenager of her village in the Czech Giant Mountains. During a language course in Berlin, she meets the photographer Rickie, who arranges an internship for her in a newly developing cultural center in the Uckermark region. After a sexual assault by a West German cultural politician, Adina is stranded in Helsinki after a odyssey through half of Europe. There, Leonides, an Estonian political scientist and member of parliament for the EU, initially becomes her stop. While he campaigns for human rights, Adina seeks a way out of her inner exile.
»Blue Woman« is a stirring account of a young woman's struggle for personal integrity, on the road between the Czech Republic and Finland, Estonia and Germany. Her experiences also reflect the latest power relations between Eastern and Western Europe.
