Synopsis
Two childhood friends from East Berlin, Lilo and Linda, visit a time capsule apartment within meters of where the wall once stood and where fragments of it still stand, and within meters of their childhood homes in which their respective parents still live. Now on the brink of 30, not much younger than their parents had been at the time of the wall’s demolition, rediscovering physical features of their childhood triggers an act of shared memory and a discussion of the presence of their past in their present-day. This flat, and their childhood memories of a different country and a different way of life, are fragile oases of the old in a desert of the often ill-considered new.
