1980, the German-German borderlands: Right through the middle of a lake runs a precisely defined "fluid border" between East- and West Germany. One night a storm shifts one of the buoys which form the borderline. While the border guards from East and West are trying to restore the border, two land surveyors throw their prejudices overboard and tear down their boundaries.
