***SPOILERS*** Touching behind the Iron Curtain love story with an ending straight out of the movie "Casablanca" has East German refugee from Communism Werner Schff, Richard Beyman, try to get his pregnant wife Liese, Katherine Crawford, back to him. As it turned out earlier in the movie Werner escaped with his life after evading East German border guards by falling into a nearby ditch where he was rescued by the West German police. As for Werner's wife Liese she didn't fear so well getting caught and borough back to Communist East Berlin. Back in West Berlin and recovering from his injuries Werner runs into Victoria Meinicke also played by Katherine Crawford who works for an West Germany publishing house who's the spitting image of his wife Liese!

With the East German regime opening up the Berlin Wall for the upcoming Easter Holidays the desperate Werner attempts to sweep Victoria off her feet even asking her to marry him so he can have her cross into East Berlin and use, by swiping them,her identity papers to get Lisea, in impersonating Victoria, to cross into West Berlin together with him! This sleazy plan on Werner's part would in fact leave Vicroria behind with almost no hope of getting back, without her papers, to her home in West Germany!

***SPOILERS*** When Werner finally tracks down his wife Liese and tells her his plan to get her out of East Germany she has deep reservations as well as guilty feelings in what her husband is planning to do. Yes Lisea went's to be free from Communism but doesn't want someone else, Victoria, to have to pay the price for it! It's in fact Victoria who in effect clears things up who after tracking down her "lover" and "future husband" Werner at the border check-point. Victoria instead of exposing Werner and his plan goes along with it knowing how much he's in love with Liese. Even though he left her to hang or twist in the wind at a nearby dinner without her identification papers and thus no ticket to get back home!

Victoria showed by her actions or inactions in not turning that heel Werner in to the East Berlin Poilce that she had more class and humanity for him as well as Liese then he would have ever had for her in in that matter anyone else. And you, as well as Werner & Lises, had no doubt at all by the time the movie ended she'll have no trouble in convincing the East German authorities, in proving who she is, and be release back to West Germany. And at the same time make Werner, in having what she did rub off on him, a much better person for it!
