Summer 1988: As promising young athletes in the GDR, the twins Isa and Doreen are allowed to attend a training camp at Lake Balaton in Hungary. There, they meet Arne and Nico from Hamburg. What begins as a holiday romance develops for Doreen and Arne into a serious love affair – for which the girl from the Saxon province is willing to risk everything – namely, to escape to the West. A year later, the Berlin Wall falls, making the offense of “illegal emigration” obsolete. This is a teenage love story, which in spite of its political background and knowing what we know today, remains light-hearted and cheerful.
