Filmmaker Dirk Simon's harrowing documentary tells the true story of Egon Bunge, a border guard in 1980 East Berlin whose attempt to escape the oppressive political regime left his partner at the gate, Ulrich Steinhauer, dead. Simon delves into the complexities and conflicting loyalties faced by the border militia, everyday citizens who were drafted into fighting an unofficial war against their countrymen.
