subtitles because it's all in German. A young border
guard, Martin (Jonas Nay) in East Germany is forced to go
undercover in West Germany, to spy for the government. This
takes place about the time that Ronald Reagan was
thinking about bombing Russia. Martin just wants to get back
to his mom and girlfriend, but he's forced to do what his
government is forcing him to do, even though it's very
This is not "The Americans." It's a much more realistic
show. Nay reminds me a little of Elijah Woods.
He has similarly big eyes and shows a lot with them.
There are only 8 episodes, but they lack a lot of great
