The "Rote Zora" was a feminist militant women's lesbian group in the FRG in the 1970s and 1980s, which emerged from the context of the Revolutionary Cells. Central to the group was the self-empowerment of the women-lesbians and the break with the ascribed peacefulness. Their activities were directed, among other things, against everyday violence against women, against genetic and reproductive technologies, population policy and international conditions of exploitation as an expression of patriarchal domination. Narratives by various contemporary witnesses, interviews with a historian and former Zoras bring the history of the "Red Zora" and the women's movement of the time back to life. The film shows that many topics are still highly topical and offers discussion material for dealing with this history today.
