THE WALL looks deep inside the revolution that swept across Europe two decades ago — with the November 1989 opening of the Berlin Wall — to understand how this remarkable event helped end the Cold War without a shot being fired. The film explores the lives of ordinary people caught up in Cold War politics: a young father forced to tunnel beneath the wall to reunite his family; a teenager whose love of pop culture got him in deep trouble with the state; a student activist helping make a peaceful revolution while facing down tanks; and a young man broken by the ruthless interrogation methods of the secret police. The film also goes behind the scenes with political leaders — George Bush, Mikhail Gorbachev, Helmut Kohl, James Baker, and Condoleezza Rice — to reveal the tense moments surrounding the wildly unexpected series of events that resulted in a new Europe in less than a year.
