A German language film set in 1979 East Germany, during the height of the Cold War – two ordinary families, yearning for freedom, secretly form a great escape plan to get across to the West, to fly over the Iron Curtain in a self-made hot-air balloon, built with small pieces of cloth stitched together. A failed attempt sets off a dangerous race against time, with the State Police now hot on their heels… a gripping true story of resistance.
