East Berlin, early summer 1989, a few months before the fall of the Wall. 18-year-old Suzie is thrown headfirst into the vibrant fashion scene in socialist East Germany when a photo of her ends up on the cover of Sibylle, the Vogue of the East. Together with the glamourous Rudi, she dives into the dazzling underground subculture working on their very own fantastic and passionate fashion designs.
When she falls in love with the talented and rebellious photographer Coyote, her life ultimately changes. On his "Indian" motorbike, they speed towards the beach and Suzie lives the freedom she had always dreamed of. But while Suzie’s star as a supermodel is on the rise, Coyote has other plans and Suzie is asked to betray her friends. Now Suzie must decide: what price is she willing to pay?
