A "mufta" is a multifunctional table, a "minetta" is a radio, mopeds are called "swallows" and "asthmakraut halle" (a special asthma medication) is the only recreational drug available. The Soviet Union is big brother; the rest of the world is the enemy of the people, and the Berlin Wall is actually a bulwark againt fascists. This is the German Democratic Republic, the land where Michael lives. He wears bell-bottoms and a home-printed Rock & Pop T-shirt. And the street he lives on winds most of its length through West-Berlin, with just its tail in the East. The apartment is cramped and his neighbour works for the secret police.<P>His an uncle from the West smuggles in pantyhose and there's a West German passport which causes his mother to age before his very eyes. But Micha is focused on his goal: doing whatever it takes to win the heart of the prettiest girl at school.
