Berlin, 1989. Sascha is a young East German border guard; and Franzi, a lively young West German woman who has just moved into a flat next to Sascha's watchtower at the Berlin Wall. It takes only a slight mishap and a selfless act of chivalry - and the two fall in love.
But soon Stasi believes they are witnessing the start of a revolt - after all, this is the time of mass protests, and of East Germans taking refuge in the West German embassy in Prague. Franzi and Sascha have to find their ways to stand up for their love, and strive for the impossible - to bring down the wall.
