LINE OF SEPARATION – SEASON 2, PART 1
After the Communists built a wall through the village of Tannbach at the end of Season 1, dividing it into west and east, the fronts now harden in Season 2. While the Thuringian half-lives under Socialism in East Germany, the Bavarian half in the West enjoys the economic miracle of capitalism. Then the Wall claims its first victims. A microcosm of the division of Germany during the Cold War.
