Synopsis: Heroes Like Us presents as heroes ordinary teenagers and young East German adults,
who in Thomas Brussig's (the novel and screenplay author) story, caused the Fall of the Berlin Wall.
Our young hero falls in love, from an early age,
with a girl whose family is not in good standing with the ruling Communist party.
Our hero's father, however, is a member of the "Stasi", the secret state police.
The father not only hinders his son's relationship with the girl, but he arranges for his son,
after finishing school, to become a Stasi spy himself.
The absurdities of everyday life in the former German "Democratic" Republic are comically
(sometimes tragically) are exposed throughout the film.
