Berlin, spring 1948. Teenage cousins Erich and Katarina are just trying to survive in a city still devastated by World War 2 when the Soviets blockade the city isolating its citizens-and starving them-behind the Iron Curtain. But the Americans have food, so Erich sneaks inside a U.S. cargo plane...where he is caught by a sympathetic American sergeant who tries to befriend him. Though Erich has plenty of reasons to resent this man, in the end he must decide-should he cling to bitterness or learn to forgive?
