When he then declares war on the fairy kingdom and the sea people, it soon becomes clear that Fana is the only person with the knowledge to use the star diamond.

An award-worthy love story about two girls

Berlin, in the early summer of 1961, when the border between East and West is no more than a white dividing line on the streets of the city.

Nothing can separate them – or so they think. But in the August of that year, the construction of the Berlin Wall tears the city – and the two girls - apart.
