Film Presentation:
Cum ar putea cineva sa-si imagineze R.D.G.-ul fara sa fi trait acolo? Nascuta cu un an inainte de caderea Zidului, regizoarea intra in contact cu trecutul parintilor ei in orasul sau natal, Halle. Desi aceasta perioada e deja apusa, viata locuitorilor este inca afectata, in ciuda eforturilor lor, de divizarea societatii germane dupa razboi si de consecintele acesteia. Apar contradictii, cum ar fi cea dintre nostalgia unei epoci disparute si bucuria libertatii obtinute dupa 1989. Filmul arata lupta dusa pentru un teatru de copii amenintat cu disparitia.
