Both in their late teens, Heiko and Tommy are inseparable friends with an impossible dream: to emigrate to Australia. It's impossible because they live in Communist East Berlin and it's three years before the fall of the Wall. Yet the rebellious Tommy vows to flee East Germany. Though skeptical of Tommy's plan, Heiko joins him - and they are both caught. While in prison, they are faced with men obsessed with gaining power over their minds and bodies. Pressured to spy on the Neo-Nazis in exchange for Heiko's release, Tommy agrees, and Heiko returns to the others. But by now, he has lost his will and his soul. Soon the Wall comes down and East Germany ceases to exist. Yet the Neo-Nazis continue to grow, finding many supporters among the regime's former prison inmates - including Heiko, who now becomes one of the right-wingers' most virulent spokesmen. When the Neo-Nazis learn that Tommy spied on them in prison, they resolve that Tommy must be eliminated - and that Heiko is the one to do it
