DEADLINE - FEBRUARY 21
The Weissensee Saga (Season 1) - BUY THIS DVD!
The Weissensee Saga is a sweeping family saga of conflicting loyalties, betrayal, love and hope, set in 1980s East Berlin. Uwe Kockisch (Donna Leon's Brunetti) stars as Hans Kupfer, a Stasi officer whose youngest son, Martin, falls in love with the daughter of a dissident singer. Their love affair sets events into motion which affect both families over a turbulent decade.
The Kupfers and the Hausmanns could hardly be more different. The Kupfers are powerful in the Communist system - father Hans and eldest son Falk are officers in the notorious Stasi secret service, and younger son, Martin, is a policeman. By contrast, the Hausmanns are dissidents. Mother Dunja is under surveillance as a singer, and daughter Julia has a record as being politically unreliable. But both families become fatefully intertwined when Martin falls in love with Julia, in defiance of his family's political alliances. The young couple will have to take on the world and both their families to see their love through.
The Weissensee Saga (Season 2) - BUY THIS DVD!
Six years have passed since Julia was arrested for treason. Martin hasn't seen her since, and will never forgive his brother Falk for having betrayed them. He's holding onto hope for reuniting with Julia and finding out the fate of their unborn child. Julia s mother, Dunja Hausmann, is betraying her deepest convictions and working with the Stasi to alleviate her daughter's harsh prison conditions. Martin s father, Hans, works behind the scenes to campaign for radical reform of the Stasi and the Party from within. And Falk's wife, Vera, meets the unconventional pastor Robert Wolff and gets involved in the environmental and civil rights movements.
The Weissensee Saga (Season 3) - BUY THIS DVD!
Autumn, 1989. The Iron Curtan is falling, and the changing political climate takes its toll on the Kupfer family. Martin Kupfer tries to get his daughter back, with the aid of a West German reporter. His brother Falk belongs to a group of hardcore Stasi officers who are prepared to do anything to preserve Communist power. His father, Hans, opposes any movement that has the potential for getting out of control. Meanwhile, Dunja Hausmann and Vera Kupfer are fighting for democratic reforms amid the ranks of the Civil Rights movement. They're hiding skeletons in the closet, but they're not the only ones.
