    • Synopsis
    • 1979, East Germany during the height of the Cold War. Two ordinary families yearning for freedom secretly form a great escape plan to get across to the West: with courage ang ingenuity, they build a hot air balloon with small pieces of cloth for their eight family-members to fly over the border. But an initial failure threatens their entire plan, setting off a dangerous race against time for a second attempt, with the State Police now hot on their heels… An incredible true story of resistance.
