Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
In this film based on the novel by Jonannes Mario Simmel, Bruno (Heinz Donez) may have served time for petty thievery, and may be an accomplished denizen of the Berlin underworld, but he has heart, and he has plans. When the Berlin wall went up, a whole industry of escape specialists grew up who were rigorously pursued by the East German government. Bruno is recruited to try to capture one of these specialists for trial and imprisonment. However, Bruno wants out and arranges with the Americans and West Germans to entrap the specialists' East German pursuers instead.
