1979, East Germany. At the height of the Cold War, two ordinary families form a daring plan to escape to the West. With great courage and ingenuity, they secretly build a hot air balloon out of small pieces of cloth to fly over the border. But after the first attempt fails, a dangerous race against time begins. As the State Police close in, the would-be balloonists have one last chance to take flight. An incredible and thrilling true story of resistance. Contains moderate threat.
