Synopsis
Two men who are fed up with the daily indignities and tyrannies of life under Communist rule in East Germany come up with a daring plan of escape. They decide to travel to democratic West Germany in a hot air balloon. However, they need to build a new type of lighter-than-air craft if they are to transport themselves as well as their families across safely.
