SYNOPSIS

An adventurous story about the “real” happenings of November 9, 1989 in Germany, the day the wall came down! For ten-year-old Frederike, October 1989 gets off to a disastrous start: her beloved Uncle Mike is expelled from the GDR and has to leave the country within 48 hours. Inspired by her big idol Captain Kirk, Frederike and her friends Jonathan and Fabian construct a teleporting machine to “beam” herself to West Berlin to visit her uncle Mike. But the experiment dramatically fails. Only quick thinking and action can undo the experiment and prevent the worst from happening before the border guards open fire. A race against time and the nasty local policeman Mauder begins.
