BALLOON (M)

1979, East Germany during the height of the Cold War. Two Ordinary families yearning for freedom secretly form a great escape plan to get across to the West. With courage & ingenuity as their main weapons, they build a hot air balloon with small pieces of cloth for their eight family-members to fly over the Iron Curtain. But an initial failure puts their entire plan in jeopardy, setting off a dangerous race against time for a second attempt, with the state police hot on their heels….An incredible and gripping true story of resistance.

“A tense, edge-of the-seat thriller” Karl Quinn – The Age & Sydney Morning Herald
