    • It is summer 1989, cracks are appearing in the Wall and Europe is holding its breath to see what autumn will bring. When her disabled father tries to commit suicide, his death wish hurts 16-year old Nena to the core. Meanwhile she is also falling deeply in love for the first time - with Carlo, whose father has just come out of the closet. While discovering her own lust for life, she comes to realize that the life of her father Martin is growing bleaker.
