Documentary used to advertise the merits of the East German classical music and culture-loving population in direct contrast to the ‘decadent’, western pop music.

Through interviews with musicians active at the time, both in both East and West Germany the film compares and contrasts the lives of those involved, and provides an insight into the way the political system influenced artistic life.
