Kabe’s apartment faces the Berlin Wall, which is just the most visible confinement in his life in the East. He feels compelled to overcome the barriers surrounding him and tries to jump over the wall again and again. As a result, he is admitted to a mental institution and later to jail, until his life takes an unexpected turn. Filmed after the novel “Der Mauerspringer” (The Wall Jumper) by Peter Schneider.
