Witnessing her son being arrested during a street protest, Christine suffers a heart attack and falls into a deep coma. By the time she recovers, the Berlin Wall is no more. As a die-hard supporter of the GDR this news could kill her. Her son and daughter decide to devise evermore elaborate schemes to keep the news from her. The creation, and maintenance, of a make-believe world involves hare-brained ideas and increasingly desperate actions. A hugely enjoyable, yet thought-provoking comedy, with as much to say about the corruption of capitalism as the strictures of communism.

Best European Film, Berlin Film Festival, 2003
