Communism was always an anathema to the existence of the realmost Irish
spirits of the world and for those of merit in respect of individualistic 

This movie deals with how Germans tried to cope with the effects of Communistic 
rule including the secret Police apparatus and the harassment which came from 
it all until the world had finally had enough and allowed the peoples of Germany
to re-unite ending decades of cruel and unusual punishment which is what they 
had lived with for all too long by then, with their own peoples 
involved in oppression of a police state nature as other movies here attest 
to such as "Barbara" (2012) starring Fraulein Ms. Nina Hoss etc.
