Summer 1989, East Germany. Adam works as a tailor, Evelyn as a waitress. They are planning a vacation together when Evelyn finds out that Adam is cheating on her and decides to leave for the holiday on her own. She travels to Hungary, trailed by Adam. As the border with Austria falls, everything changes in Hungary. The frontiers are open, as the new possibilities for Adam and Evelyn to decide in which world – Eastern or Western – they want to build a happy life. The film is based on the novel “Adam und Evelyn” by Ingo Schulze which was translated into more than ten languages.

“Goldstein establishes a sense of gentle contemplation, within which the way life felt, looked, sounded and smelled during that particular August, in the last months of the Cold War, is as important as the developments in the plot.” (Cineuropa,Tina Poglajen)
