Storyline

Based on a true story, Stephan Wagner's thriller focuses on a man and his fight against the East German secret service. After an escape attempt, Wolfgang Stein is sentenced to ten years in prison, but is finally ransomed by the West German government in 1971. Dieter Michaelis, another refuge, asks him to help an East German fellow-sufferer to flee the country via Bulgaria. This is the beginning of Stein's efforts to outsmart the agents of the East German "Staatssicherheit" again and again, until they finally try to eliminate him... Written by fippi2000

Excellent historical film
18 August 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

(May contain spoilers) I always appreciate to learn what happened in the world through those historical films, and this one is moreover magnificently played, directed and built on a solid and moving scenario. The man's personality is particularly impressive. I admired this ex-prisoner courage who engaged in passing East-Germans to the West, even when this courage turns to be obsession sometimes, especially when he goes as far as risking his wife and his daughter's lives. I guess very few people would have the nerves to go even half that far. It is nevertheless still a true and admirable story. His wife's eventual suicide brings us to a sad end though...
