Based on the true story of Ann Elisabeth Rosmus, Michael Verhoeven's award-winning black comedy uses sharp wit and an intriguing postmodern style to explore a serious subject: Germany's Nazi past. A determined student (Lena Stolze) is dubbed "The Nasty Girl" when she embarks on an investigation of her hometown's secret shame. She sets out to write an essay title "My Town During the Third Reich," and outraged local citizens, intent on preserving their version of history, go to violent lengths to stop her from exposing the truth.
