Historical drama based on a real story located in the year 1979, in the old and socialist German Democratic Republic and in the middle of the Cold War between the two world hegemonic blocs. Two humble families seek the way to reach the promised freedom of the capitalist side, that they do not find in the communist one. They will arm themselves with bravery and ingenuity and build what will be their method of escape, one of the most original seen at that time. With long remnants of fabric purchased or found, a domestic sewing machine and butane cylinders will create a hot air balloon that will fly over the Berlin Wall and the neutral zone to pass to the other side without being caught in the attempt.
