Synopsis
Berlin, late 1970s. Nelly Senff and her son Alexej leave East Germany for West Berlin to get a fresh start. But instead of the freedom they had wished for, they find themselves in a small, fenced in world: the Emergency Refugee Centre in Berlin Marienfelde, a hotspot between the two opposing systems. Now, Nelly has to decide whether she will let the trauma of the past destroy the future she had in mind for her and her son.
