So far, the tricky would-be reporter has only approached the stars in his job as a waiter. Without a high school diploma and professional experience, the chances of getting a coveted trainee ship are slim. Together with his friend Maik, he tries to recommend himself with gossip stories: As soon as a celebrity shows up, he gives the reporter and Maik the paparazzi. However, nothing more than nice memories emerges. His strong will nevertheless made an impression on the star journalist Marbach, who recommended him for her newspaper. The big chance comes from Erich Honecker, of all people, who is supposed to answer for the wall dead. All the media want an interview with him, but the former GDR head of state lets them down. Whoever makes him speak has the lead story of the year. In order to win Honecker's trust, hype is all right: he befriends old SED comrades and appears to found the League of Young Communists in reunified Germany. Posted photos are just the beginning. This goes too far for his companion Maik and friend Jenny, whose brother was killed in the "escape from the republic", turns away from her future husband. He's now obsessed with the idea of having the last interview with Honecker. At all costs. See less
