Annett SchneiderPlayed by Sonja Gerhardt
Martin's fiancée and childhood sweetheart back home in Kleinmachnow, age 23. She teaches sports and music at the same high school as Martin's mother, Ingrid. She loves Martin and believes he is the "right" kind of man to create a life with in the GDR.
At the beginning of the story, Annett is an innocent. But she is also canny, seductive and determined, the kind of person who would do well in any system. In the GDR, this means holding fast to Party doctrine.
