A film depicting three outsiders in the bizarre and eccentric microcosm of German nobility.
Noble Commitments portrays three aristocratic single women, torn between traditional expectations and everyday life, between manor house and pre-fab high-rise buildings: Countess Alexandra von Bredow, Baroness Alexandra von Beaulieu-Marconnay, Verena von Zerboni di Sposetti. Unable to live up to their parents expectations, they have to scale down their standards and re-orientate themselves. Within the nobility, the male family line is valid. To belong to noble society, they have to either marry a man with a title or lead a solitary life.
