The final installment of Volker Koepp's March Brandenburg trilogy moves away from the town of Zehdenick in order to focus on rural areas north of Berlin. Made in the period between the currency union in the GDR and the official reunification in October 1990, the film shows how the lives of the residents have changed: Crippling unemployment has taken the place of hard work.
