An epic love story, spread over thirty years and based around the upheaval caused by the Berlin Wall. When the wall is erected, Sophie manages to flee to the West, but Konrad, her lover, is not so lucky. Over the following 28 years their lives take dramatically different courses: she begins a new life as a translator while he is hounded by the Stasi, enlisted into the armed forces and eventually trains to become an astrophysicist. Their relationship is traced through the fleeting encounters that take place over the subsequent decades.
