"Nine months before the fall of the Wall, Chris Gueffroy died. He was shot dead on the Berlin Wall during the flight and is the last death sacrifice of the inhuman border regime of the SED dictatorship. Chris Gueffroy was 20 years old when he died. His name became a cipher for dying at the Berlin Wall. Who was Chris Gueffroy? Why did not he want to live in the GDR? What prompted him and his friend Christian Gaudian to risk their lives on the Berlin Wall? Filmmaker Klaus Salge asks Karin Gueffroy, the mother of the dead, and his friends after Chris. The film carefully covers the past and draws a sensitive portrait of Chris Gueffroy, his life in the GDR, his dreams, and his little fantasies."--Machine-translation of summary on publisher's web site
