A studio room. Puppets. Frank Karbstein. Reminiscent, reflective, playful, narrating.
The 1980s of the GDR – the group around the puppeteer Frank is arrested for distributing pacifistic leaflets. After being sentenced to imprisonment, the defendants are offered the opportunity to go to the West through a secret buy out of political prisoners. Frank stays. But the question remains: Who betrayed them?
Different truths and memories stand side by side. In the center of this is a person who never tries to act from the mindset of a victim and who shows his very own personal way of dealing with the GDR dictatorship.
