When a new model, Karin, enters the home of famous fashion designer Petra von Kant, Petra's world -- and career -- rocket to manic heights. But in the midst of Petra’s euphoria, her submissive assistant, Marlene, senses a threat. When Karin becomes a superstar, leaving everything behind, Marlene is left picking up the broken pieces. What Marlene does with those pieces will dictate the rest of her life. Featuring an all-female cast, The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant delves into the tortured connections between desire and power in an industry driven by consumption.
