Martin Schulz is released from Brandenburg penitentiary after 11 years of imprisonment. As a former citizen of the German Democratic Republic, he experienced the fall of the wall from his prison cell.
Upon release, he receives the items in his possession at the time of his arrest: a blue East German identification card, an East German driver's license, and a wallet full of East German money. Martin is full of hope when he returns home, but hardly recognizes East Berlin again.
The "New Berlin" has already taken over and the "Old East Berlin" clings desperately to its last remaining traits. The 11-year absence is like a time machine and Martin runs into one difficulty after another while finding his place in this "new" world.
