Synopsis
The film approaches the journalist and politician Johannes Hoffmann, his time as the first prime minister of Saarland and the referendum in 1955. These years that have greatly polarized the population of Saarland, were groundbreaking for the beginnings of political Europe after the Second World War.
Especially in the anniversary year of the Elysée Treaty, it is important to remember that the beginning of the Franco-German reconciliation and efforts to achieve a political Europe have also taken here in Saarland their way. The failure of  Saarlands independence in the 50s was still the beginning of a major European political unification.
