An adventurous story about the "real"
happenings of November 9, 1989 in Germany, the day the wall came down! For
ten-year-old FRIEDERIKE (10) October 1989 gets off to a disastrous start: her
beloved UNCLE MIKE (27) is expelled from the GDR and has to leave the country
within 48 hours. Inspired by her big idol Captain Burgh, Friederike and her
friends JONATHAN (10) and FABIAN (10) construct a teleporting machine to
"beam" her uncle Mike back to the GDR. But the
experiment dramatically fails. Instead of successfully beaming the three kids
across, the entire village population disappears! For a moment it seems
that Friederike and her friends are the last remaining kids on earth. But
TV proves what Friederike had immediately suspected: they have managed to beam
everybody but themselves to West Berlin. They witness on TV how their
families and friends desperately try to climb back over the Wall to their home
country. Only quick thinking and action can undo the experiment and prevent the
worst from happening before the border guards open fire. A race against time
and the nasty local policeman MAUDER begins.
