Germany 1987. Two sisters and their grown-up children find themselves on different sides of the political fence in a rapidly disintegrating East Germany. Margot (48) is a major in the state security service (Stasi), Lotte (44) is in the opposition. We meet the women in the chaotic years between 1987 and 1990 as they fight for their ideals. A third sister, believed drowned years before, turns up in the West with a secret to tell on the eve of the fall of the Wall.
