Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
In this intriguing European documentary filmmaker Bjorn Cederberg, a former friend of East German underground radical Sascha Anderson, interviews those who surrounded him for 20 years to get their insight and feelings after it is discovered that the man they looked up to as "a fearless and magnetic figure in the illegal underground" was in fact an informant and spy for Stasi, the East German secret police organization that contains more holdings than the Pentagon and FBI combined. The film, narrated by British actor, John Hurt, chronicles Anderson's past up through the revelation. As a fascinating conclusion, Cederberg follows Conny, former friend of Anderson as she reads her Stasi file, compiled by Anderson. She is then taken to Italy where she is able to confront Anderson on camera. Anderson denies his actions and involvement with Stasi.
