Storyline

An entire classroom of twelfth graders in the Communist-controlled German Democratic Republic is traumatized when they discover what is really happening during the Hungarian Uprising of 1956. This forbidden information brings them into conflict with the school and government authorities, and only by sticking together can they save one or all members of the class from persecution. Family ties are also called into question. Written by Charles Paxton Martin

Nice little Sunday afternoon flick.
14 October 2018 | by lukavulevicSee all my reviews

Movie keeps your attention and keeps your eyes open which is crucial. Story itself is really deep and it just gets better as movie passes... If you love mid 1950's, German discipline from that time and overall deep stories then this one is for you.Enjoy it.
