The real life story of East German singer and writer Gerhard Gundermann and his struggles with music, life as a coal miner and his dealings with the secret police (STASI) of the GDR.

MUBI's take

He was East Germany’s answer to Bob Dylan and a committed communist. He was an excavator operator and a Stasi informant. He was a father and husband. With warmth and nuance, Gerhard Gundermann is remembered as a cult musician of corrupted ideals in Andreas Dresen’s award-winning biopic.
