Marlo, an American student overseas, meets and fall in love with Karl, an East German medical student. Karl tries to escape the “Iron Curtain” for the West to start a new life with Marlo. But Warsaw Pact troops mobilized in August of 1968 create an unexpected obstacle, and the couple’s future appears doomed. The story reveals little- known realities about life in former Communist East Germany- but, even more, discloses the indomitable human spirit.
