Description: The story opens in the early 1970s, at the height of the Cold War, as West German revolutionaries-in-love rob banks, hop continents on the lam, and try to reconcile their left-wing ideals with the less glamorous realities of their daily lives. Rita ends up in the East German equivalent of a witness protection program living out her "legend" (false identity) as a typical socialist worker. Now the year is 1989. The Berlin Wall is about to fall. Will Rita's world fall too?
