Clara

Devoted to science and peace. Betrayed by envy and ambition

Inspired by the true story of a pioneer in chemistry, Clara Immerwahr (1870-1915)


She knew that she would be mocked, ridiculed, and blamed for everything that could go wrong: yes, Clara knew that her place was supposed to be in the kitchen, yet she single-mindedly pursued her dream of becoming a scientist, and was the first woman at the University of Breslau to obtain a doctorate. Upon marrying the chemist and later Nobel Prize winner Fritz Haber, her life begins to slide into an existential crisis: on the one hand, Fritz supports her scholarly work, yet on the other, he sees her as an assistant with little claim to recognition for her own merits and achievements. The push-and-pull of their relationship continues until Fritz – betraying their mutual goal to use chemistry for the good of mankind – develops a poison gas employed by the German army in WWI with devastating and uncontrollable results. Fritz's craving for fame and honors has overruled his humanity. It is now up to Clara to prevent the production of lethally toxic gases. And to do so she will even have to take on the Kaiser.
