Aventura International Film Series
In a divided Germany of 1979, the residents of the East live under the watchful eye of the Stasi, the notorious secret police. During this time two families have been working on an audacious escape plan for more than two years - to flee East Germany in a self-made hot air balloon. But the balloon crashes just short of the West German border. The Stasi find traces of the attempted escape and launch an investigation, while the two families work under extreme pressure build a new balloon. The Stasi get closer and closer each day and a nerve-racking battle against the clock begins.
