In August 1961, the construction of the Berlin Wall is completed. But despite the barrier, the East-German swimming champion, Harry Melchior (Ferch), manages to pass to the West, thanks to a good disguise and forged papers. Meanwhile, his sister, Lotte, remains in communist territory and Harry is determined to save her.
