Synopsis
The village of Marienborn in Germany once was world-famous. It was the most important and most guarded border crossing of the Iron Curtain. These days, Marienborn is a quiet place. The Stasi-offices and checkpoints are boarded up; grass is growing through barbed wire. For 40 years the border determined the lives of all 500 villagers. Some acquired power and status at Stasi border control. Others simply secured a little job and kept their mouths shut. After the fall of the Berlin Wall, Marienborn became a broken community amid the ruins of a fallen regime.
