The GDR in 1979: an unsuccessful attempt to flee by hot-air balloon has alerted the Stasi. The families that had made the attempt work feverishly on a new balloon. The materials have to be sourced from all over the country. The sewing is done at night while everyday appearances have to be kept up during the day. The merciless race against time and the forces of order provide this truly breathtaking film with perfect material.
"Michael Bully Herbig has shown us a new side of himself. His movie is pure and honest genre film, that captures the GDR well – and is deeply exciting, even though everybody knows how it ended.” radioeins
