It is 1989 and 12-year-old Fritzi lives in East Germany. When Fritzi’s best friend Sophie goes on holiday Fritzi happily agrees to take care of Sophie’s dog, Sputnik. But then Sophie doesn’t come back: she and her mum have fled across the border seeking refuge in Hungary. Fritzi becomes determined to reunite Sophie and Sputnik so starts planning to cross the border herself. Through encounters with hostile townsfolk, sympathetic friends, members of the local resistance movement and Stasi officers Fritzi discovers that life in a communist state is far more hostile and restrictive than she had ever realised. But change is in the air, and Fritzi is about to become part of something extraordinary.
