The movie takes place in the East Communist Germany a few years before the collapse of the Berlin Wall. The main character, a dedicated police officer of the East Germany secret police (Stasi), is watching a playwright and his lover, an actress. During the surveillance, the secret agent – a stern, obedient, communist ideologist, with no other interests in life – starts doubting for the first time the communist regime and its benefit to the society. He has an awakening experience which he finally begins to clearly see the truth of all communist regimes: the ideologist, self-appointed defenders of the people, inevitably end up as their dictators.
