A Stasi Comedy


Communist East Berlin, early 1980s: LUDGER is hired by the Stasi to infiltrate a subversive countercultural movement in the district of Prenzlauer Berg. After falling in love with the mysterious NATHALIE and sleeping with his first target, CORINNA, Ludger ends up living  two lives – one as an underground poet and one as a Stasi agent – both of which eventually come back to haunt him 30 years later.
