Between the years 1949 and 1990 roughly four million people left the GDR for West Germany. “WEST” (adapted from the book Lagerfeuer Julia Franck – now published as West in English by Harvill Secker/Vintage Books) tells the story of a young mother, who together with her son, leaves the GDR to try for a new beginning in the West.
