It's a true story. It's her story. The story of her conflicted admiration and disdain for Luise Brand, her grandmother. The East German government built an anti-fascist protective wall around Berlin. Luise Brand conceived and constructed a majestic private house in a small village in Thüringen where she lived with her older husband, younger lover, two dogs and two daughters. Übermasstedt. Her walls were twice as thick as the Berlin wall. That wall is gone. Luise Brand is dead. GDR socialism failed. Übermasstedt succumbed to an evil destiny. Capitalism. The house is reborn bad. It's alive and it’s not pretty.
