1913 was the last year of peace before the First World War. Many artists, however, intuited the dark times approaching Europe in their works. And with »Le sacre du printemps« (»The rite of spring«), Igor Stravinsky created a revolutionary sound for that time which caused a scandal at its première on 29 May 1913. In 13 chapters, the film presents the important topics and personalities of the year 1913, including Igor Stravinsky, Ballets Russes with its director Sergei Diaghilev and the dancer Vaslav Nijinsky, Coco Chanel, Franz Kafka, Emperor Wilhelm II and Tsar Nicholas II. The film creates a mosaic of an exciting year that brought about the start of a new era and the end of peace in Europe.
