Synopsis
Although the official colour of communism is red, real existing socialism in East Germany presented itself in shades of grey. The entire country was forced to dress in clothes that were twenty years behind western standards. How can a political system survive such a deficiency in taste? Well... history shows it didn‘t survive. Filmmaker and former GDR model Marco Wilms sets out on a journey into the heart of the GDR‘s Kafkaesque fashion scene and reveals what really made the Berlin Wall tumble down: The Socialist Party‘s lack of good taste.
