Kuratorium junger deutscher Film und BKM
Matze is living in East Berlin and dreaming of travelling abroad. By sending a message in a bottle he hopes it arrives in Australia or South America. But then Lika is answering him from West Berlin. This part of the city is unknown to Matze like any far away country.
A correspondence as pen friends starts between the two of them and in the end they even manage to meet ignoring the Berlin Wall or any obstacle between them. A story about breaking borders in the 80s in Berlin that could have been true.
