Two families try a daredevil plan to escape DDR with a home made warm air balloon, but it crashes just before the border. The Stasi finds strains of this try to get away and straight away starts investigations, even as the two households are forced to build a brand new escape balloon. With each passing day the Stasi is closer on their heels – a nerve-wracking race against time begins.
