|Ballon: In the summer of nineteen seventy-nine, in Thüringen, in East Germany, two families put together a crazy plan. They are desperate to leave the DDR for the 'West' and
plan to flee in a homemade hot air balloon. After sewing and tinkering for weeks, the amateurs make their first attempt. Meters from the West German border, their balloon
suffers from the rain and crash lands. Luckily, they manage to avoid being caught by the police.
