Summer 1961, Germany. Emil (Dennis Mojen) arrives at DEFA Studio Babelsberg to begin working as an extra when he falls in love with a French dance-double, Milou (Emilia Schüle). Though it's love at first sight, they are torn apart when East Germany closes its border and erects the Berlin Wall just days after they first meet. Milou returns to Paris. Emil remains in East Germany, crushed by the fact that the love of his life just slipped through his hands... that is, until he set in motion a daring and adorably romantic plan.
