A director is in Berlin for the screening of one of his films. Walking through the city, he reflects on the Wall and on the legendary experience of one of his relatives, an uncle who has never been found again, madly out of love and who has since become a passer between the two areas of divided Germany. Multiple personal histories merge into a contemplative walk through the city of Berlin accompanied by a classical cello score. A masterful meditation of the past. The concept that past, present and future co-exist inseparable is visualised through the editing of archival footage, shots of contemporary Berlin and dramatized by a story that creates a bridge between an East German couple in attempt to escape and the legend revolving around the director’s uncle.
