A drama about personal conflicts and the political biases of the East and West German governments in the mid-'80s, this story focuses on the defection of a talented singer. Klaus (Gerulf Pannach) is finally granted permission to leave East Germany where he is no longer allowed to perform. But after arriving in the West he decides that he does not like being treated as the latest hot commodity; he appears to be no more comfortable in his new environment than in his previous one. While being hyped and promoted, he goes looking for his father, who had left nearly 30 years before to pursue his career as a musician in Cambridge.

Klauss Dritteman, jeune chanteur de RDA, est invité à quitter son pays parce que les chansons qu'il écrit ne plaisent pas aux autorités. Avant de partir, sa mère lui confie la clé d'un coffre-fort de banque, en Allemagne de l'Ouest où son père, qui avait subi le même sort pour des raisons différentes, a déposé des papiers personnels. Au grand dam de la presse occidentale, Klauss est aussi critique envers son pays qu'envers l'Occident. Habité par l'obsession de son père, il part à sa recherche aidé par une jeune journaliste.
