A Stasi agent in 1980s East Germany is ordered to spy on a prominent actress. Through the agent's moral crisis the first-time director explores the communist era - where the ex-wife of Ulrich Muhe, who plays the agent, really spied on him. The film swept the board at the 2006 German film awards, and provoked a wide debate about coming to terms with the past.
