In 1988 then 20-year old Kirsi Marie Liimatainen enrolls into Jugendhochschule "Wilhelm Pieck" in Bogensee, German Democratic Republic to study Marxism-Leninism. During her year there she befriends with the fellow students around the world, some of which use combat names to hide their true identity as in their home countries at the time socialists/communists were persecuted. This class eventually happens to be the last at that school as GDR ceases to exist due to German unification in 1989. 24 years later she tracks some of her former school fellows to learn what has happened to these comrades since they left Bodensee.
