Production Report featured in
German Films Quarterly 04/2019

When the “anti-fascist” Berlin Wall falls on November 9th 1989, superspy Martin Rauch must deal with the consequences. The peaceful revolution has thrown his world into turmoil. He and his fellow agents at the HVA (East German Foreign Intelligence) are reeling. Their government has collapsed, their organization is in chaos and their futures are uncertain, at best. How to play the next hand? Join Big Brother at the KGB? Go West and work for an enemy agency? Use international contacts to begin a new career? Or run off to paradise with hoarded gold? In the face of a new world order, our heroes reinvent themselves.
