Alex (Daniel Brohl), aware that a sudden shock could kill his mother (Katrin Sass), who is recently awoken from a coma and unaware that the Berlin Wall has come down, decides to pretend that communism has not been overthrown. This is not easy, especially as Alex and his sister have embraced the changes themselves: Alex is working for a western satellite TV company and his sister has quit college to take up a job at Burger King.
