Synopsis by Clarke Fountain

The theme of escaping to West Germany from East Germany is the theme of this melodramatic East German movie. In the story, a doctor is tempted to self-exile by the possibility of conducting well-supported research in a center of his own. After all, he has an offer of a contract from a West German businessman who will also arrange for his escape. However, a number of factors conspire to send the doctor into a tail-spin of doubt about the good sense of making such a move.
