In 1986, 17-year-old Anna (Lea Freund) travels with a youth group from her home in regional West Germany to East Berlin. There, she meets rebellious pastor's son Philipp (Tim Bülow). It is love at first sight - but the love-struck teenagers from East and West are separated by the heavily guarded border.
Not only does the Wall stand in their way, but also Anna’s parents (Franziska Weisz and Fritz Karl) who forbid her from seeing Philipp. Events then take a dramatic turn when the Stasi discover Anna’s secret visits over the border.
Based on the autobiographical novel by Katja Hildebrand, this drama from award-winning director Norbert Lechner asks whether this young love can survive such difficult times.
"Directed by Norbert Lechner, Anna's and Philipp's drama creeps in slowly, almost imperceptibly, and then crawls under your skin."
