Synopsis

1968 – a turbulent year in which a family from Romania sets off on a journey to the GDR. Everybody with their own reason. But after they cross the East-German boarder their way back is closed by Soviet tanks moving into the CSSR. Suddenly the family finds itself in West-Germany. Torn between the country they call home and the promises of a life in the so-called free world, they have to make a life-changing decision.
