Not everyone in East Berlin was happy when the Wall fell in 1989. A family
of dedicated communists has their adjustment complicated by the fact that
the mother has been in a coma for months. When she wakes up, they try to
protect her from the bad news and the evils of capitalism. Comedy ensues.
Rated R for brief language and sexuality.
