Grenze, in English BORDER,is the first movie documentary about East German border-guards, portraying their thoughts today and yesterday. Those people where told, that they where there to prevent world war three between their Warsaw Pact and the enemy NATO Alliance. Few believed in that view, they noticed very quickly, that they where jailers of their own people. This is the story of 4 Men (Director Holger Jancke was the fifth in the troop), who served 17 years ago at their prime youth at this "Frontline". Now at the reunion at 2004 they are swapping the fotographies they illegally took for the first time. They took those pictures despite the espionage threat, that could have landed them at Military-Prison. Out of pure coincidence, the border-region they had to guard is one of the only few places left to be kept as memorials. Now the viewer is invited to participate in their soul searches....
