Handling:
Baseret på den sande historie om de to østtyske familier Strelzyk og Wetzel, som i september 1979 trak overskrifter verden over. Familierne arbejder i al hemmelighed lang tid på at konstruere deres egen luftballon, som skal gøre det muligt for dem at flygte fra det østtyske diktatur til friheden i vest. Planen er både vovet og farlig, hvor både forberedelserne og selve flugten, bringer de impliceredes liv i fare i en stat, hvor sikkerhedstjenesten Stasi har informanter placeret alle steder. Da netop Stasi kommer på sporet af gruppen og deres plan, bliver familiernes flugt derfor en kamp mod uret, hvor hvert sekund tæller.

Plot (English):
In the summer of 1979, in Thüringen, in East Germany, two families put together a crazy plan. They are desperate to leave the DDR for the 'West' and plan to flee in a homemade hot air balloon. After sewing and tinkering for weeks, the amateurs make their first attempt. Meters from the West German border, their balloon suffers from the rain and crash lands. Luckily, they manage to avoid being caught by the police. However, the wreckage from their escape attempt is found and that triggers a desperate manhunt. The tension rises as the families determine to try again, and a race against time ensues. On the one hand, the authorities, desperate to track down the traitors, become aware that a second attempt is being planned. On the other, the would-be escapees, conscious of the search drawing ever nearer, need to build a more robust, weatherproof balloon - and avoid leaving too many clues.
