Herbst 1989: Mit dem Fall der Berliner Mauer bricht in Deutschland eine allgemeine Euphorie aus. Eine Hochstimmung, der Hanna Flanders sich nicht anschließen kann und will. Für die linke Schriftstellerin bricht nicht nur die Mauer zusammen; sie sieht zugleich eine persönliche Traumwelt zugrunde gehen, in der die DDR als Verwirklichung einer erstrebenswerten sozialen Realität gegolten hatte. Hanna Flanders hofft, inmitten der Atmosphäre des politischen Umbruchs auch selbst einen Neuanfang schaffen zu können, und zieht kurzerhand von München nach Berlin. Dort wird sie jedoch auch ihrer letzten Illusionen beraubt und muss akzeptieren, dass das Phantasiegebilde, welchem sie sich seit Jahren hingegeben hat, nicht mehr mit der Wirklichkeit in Einklang zu bringen ist

In a small town, everyone has tried to forget what happened shortly after WWII. That is, until a stranger finds a book that Jadup (Kurt Böwe) gave to the young refugee Boel (Katrin Knappe), who resettled in the town over 30 years ago. Painful memories about Boel and the post-war period begin to surface and shake up the whole town. Boel vanished back then and nobody knew why. Word spread about a rape and some tried to blame a Russian soldier. Jadup, the town's respected and popular mayor, remembers, though, how he mistrusted Boel and did not help her through this difficult time; HE didn't even notice that Boel loved him! Jadup's confrontation with the past gives him a new, critical view of his current situation and surroundings. Originally censored and later banned by GDR officials for being too controversial, Jadup and Boel was not released until 1988

2 editions published in 2008 in German and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Germany in the 1970s: Murderous bomb attacks, the threat of terrorism and the fear of the enemy inside are rocking the very foundations of the yet fragile German democracy. The radicalised children of the Nazi generation lead by Andreas Baader, Ulrike Meinhof and Gudrun Ensslin are fighting a violent war against what they perceive as the new face of fascism: American imperialism supported by the German establishment, many of whom have a Nazi past. Their aim is to create a more human society but by employing inhuman means they not only spread terror and bloodshed, they also lose their own humanity. The man who understands them is also their hunter: the head of the German police force Horst Herold. And while he succeeds in his relentless pursuit of the young terrorists, he knows he's only dealing with the tip of the iceberg."--Constantin Film
