The Lost Dog

1985, West Berlin: In the divided city, a dog runs away to find out what lies behind the wall. But in the East, the dog is detained by the GDR border guards. Preparations are underway to hand the dog over to the West, but with as much ado as if it were a highly sensitive agent exchange. Is this fiction or truth?
