Caroline  Labusch - I Had Hoped -  - We Could Fly


The true story of a big love and a tragic flight to freedom

East Berlin in spring 1989: A young couple wants to get out. Together the engineer and the chemist hatch out a risky plan for flying over the Wall to the West in a homemade hot air balloon. But at the last moment they are discovered. There is not enough time, only one of them will be able to fly in the balloon. It is the most difficult decision lovers have to face: you or me?

More than 25 years later writer Caroline Labusch hears of this true story. She begins to reopen the case – the story of a big love that is put to a heartrending test, a tragic flight to freedom and the last death at the Berlin Wall.
