Synopsis

In 1989, Alex lives in communist East Germany with his beloved mother, Christiane, who is a staunch follower of the party. But Alex joins the uprising against the state, and is attacked by the police - the shock of which sends Christiane into a coma. While she's unconscious, the Berlin Wall falls, and as Germany unites, the former "German Democratic Republic" is no more. When she finally awakes, her doctors tell Alex that another shock could kill her, so he must keep up the illusion that nothing has changed. Alex must resort to ever-more complicated ploys to protect his mother from the truth. This is a bright and witty take on Germany's recent history.
