Small Heading

November 9, 1989, Invalidenstrasse border crossing, East Berlin. Two hapless border guards are caught flat footed in the middle of life altering events caused by a monumental bureaucratic blunder. Un-Countried is the bizarre tale of miscommunication, accidents and happenstance that caused and characterized the fall of the Berlin Wall.

What happens, when in one spectacular moment, you lose your job, your security, your social position, the social contract of your country, and, well… your country?
 
Nothing is as simple as it seems. Truth has no currency.
