Soon after the fall of the Berlin Wall, Lena, from the former East Germany, plans a trip to Hollywood. She has planned her itinerary to the minute, but when her bag is switched at the airport and she loses the name of her hotel, all her plans are thrown into chaos, and she finds herself in the middle of a typical Hollywood suspense plot. A friendly cab driver tries to help out, but doesn't believe bad guys are really after her. Written by

My wife (a former East German) happened to tape this off the Romance channel, and we watched it together later. We had never heard of the movie, and doubt if it ever played in theaters here. The situations were very funny and romantic, and the lead actress' East German accent and mannerisms are right on the mark. We had just been visited by a young (21) East German niece of my wife with many similarities to the heroine. We were both amazed to find she is played by an English actress, Felicity Waterman. I would like to see more of her movies. She is perfect in this one. I enjoyed it as much as any movie I've seen in the past year.
