Inhalt

Nikolaikirche

The architect Astrid Protter finds herself at a turning point. Not only are things going to have to change in her marriage, but also at work and in society as a whole. More and more frequently, she starts arguments with her brother Alexander, an officer in the State Security Service.

Soon, there is a deep rift running through her family. Mean-while, in the Nikolaikirche, the peace movement led by Reverend Ohlbaum is gradually turning into a serious threat for the state. Astrid Protter has become one of their members ... Nikolaikirche is the story of a family in Leipzig during the two years of unrest starting in 1988 that culminated in the Monday Demonstration in the autumn of 1989. Frank Beyer has made a grippingly realistic film of Erich Loest′s novel about the dramatic events in the final days of the German Democratic Republic.
