Hera  Lind - Crossing the Frontier for Love


When fate has other plans: a woman is permitted to leave the GDR for love – but the golden West doesn’t deliver on its promise

Sophie, a young woman from the GDR, is torn between two men: one of them is experienced and a fair bit older, and from the East; the other is young and crazy and from the West. Out of love for the older man, whose family she doesn't want to destroy, she travels to the West – but the fiancé isn’t there. Only Hermann's parents meet her at the station, and it turns out that he has gone to Indonesia on business!

An odyssey of love ensues: Sophie goes back to the East, and when Hermann returns from Jakarta he follows her, aflame with passion. But their couple's life behind the Wall is full of hardship, and they are torn apart yet again. Although they already have a small daughter, he leaves Sophie and marries a woman in the West.

But the story doesn't end there – the Fall of the Wall has a special surprise in store for Sophie and Hermann…
