The final months in East Germany before the fall of the Berlin Wall on 9 November 1989 provide the backdrop for co-directors Ralf Kukula and Matthias Bruhn’s animated feature "Fritzi". 12 year-old Fritzi wanted to spend her summer holidays with Sophie, but her best friend has gone to Hungary on a camping trip with her mother and has left her dog Sputnik in Fritzi’s care. When Sophie doesn’t return to class after the holidays, Fritzi is preoccupied with trying to reunite Sputnik with Sophie. As the weeks pass, Fritzi experiences the dramatic changes to her country at first hand, but believes that a miracle will have to happen if she is ever to see Sophie again...
