Adam is a popular tailor, with a love of his trade, who introduces a little bit of luxury to the coarse reality of East Germany by means of custom-made dresses. He treats his profession as an art form, which allows him to maintain his inner freedom. The limitations of the world of the Eastern Bloc are severely felt by his partner Evelyn, a waitress who dreams of more than just the German provinces. This intimate story about the ruts of their love has been inserted into a broader historical context by film director Andreas Goldstein. Signals of the approaching downfall of communism gradually seep into the everyday life of the protagonists. Although barely present, the political and social revolution will weigh on their entire future. For Adam, the fall of the Berlin Wall means the loss of professional and artistic independence. For Evelyn, its recovery.
