It is 1989 and Alex (Daniel Bruhl) and his sister Ariane (Maria Simon) live in East Germany with their mother, Christiane (Katrin Sass). A staunch Socialist, Alex's mother suffers a heart attack when she sees Alex being arrested on a protest march, and falls into a coma for eight months - in which time the Berlin Wall comes down. When Christiane wakes up, doctors warn Alex that any shock could bring on a fatal heart attack, so he decides to convince his mother that her beloved Communism has not been overthrown, but is in fact triumphing over Capitalism; and Alex sets about recreating every detail of the old East Berlin in their flat.
