Synopsis

Christian Schwochow directs this German drama based on the novel 'Lagerfeuer' by Julia Franck. Nelly Senff (Jördis Triebel) lives in East Germany with her son Alexej (Tristan Göbel). When her boyfriend Wassilij (Carlo Ljubek) is killed in a car accident, Nelly decides to make the biggest decision of her life and cross the wall to West Germany. Determined to start a new life in the West, Nelly and Alexej try their hardest to adjust, but with the intelligence agencies starting to ask questions about Wassilij's mysterious and sudden death, making a clean break proves more difficult than Nelly imagined.
