"My brother is a cook. He left the city and his favourite bar in Berlin's Prenzlauer Berg district. He has been living in France for the past year, in the mountains, in the garret of Micha and Yvonne's guesthouse. Andreas thought he would die here: three heart attacks, an operation, his heart, and nothing left, but he can think again. My big brother has suddenly fallen in love. With Vanina, the wife of the blacksmith with the three sons.

Micha finances the little guesthouse with his work in cardiac wards in Switzerland and Germany. He is a cardio-technician; Yvonne used to be one. Now she is taking time for the children.

My brother works for Micha and Yvonne. He cooks for them and for the few summer guests. Now it is October, and my visit is short. I want to talk with my big brother about Micha, his friend. The man who spied on us for the Stasi.

The point here is not secret intelligence agencies. It's about my brother and me. What we don't talk about. Otherwise I wouldn't have made this film."
