With fine intuition, tenderness and humour director Andreas Dresen takes a look at the life of Gerhard "Gundi" Gundermann – an excavator driver who writes songs, who is a poet, a clown and an idealist. Who dreams and hopes and lives and fights. A spy who's being spied on. A do-gooder who doesn't know any better. A man torn apart. He died in 1998 at the age of 43. A love and music film, a drama about guilt and entanglement, a story of repression and self-sacrifice. “A clever, sincere and moving music film about a lived life with all its ideals and disappointments. It's time for such films about the GDR.” (Radio eins)

Director's Biography:Born in 1963 in Gera, grew up in Schwerin. Sound engineer at the theatre, trainee at the DEFA studio for feature films, assistant director at Günther Reisch. Since 1992 he has worked as a freelance author and director.
