Berlin Tempelhofer Feld | Chocolate from the sky

Berlin, 1949. It’s Gerda’s brother’s birthday. But in times of the “blockade”, making a birthday cake is a big challenge. There are no eggs to be found. The chickens in the bombed-out houses of the neighbours haven’t laid any in a long time. What to do? The theatre visitors accompany Gerda on her way through post-war Berlin at the time of the airlift. A black market vendor finally offers her two eggs in exchange for chocolate. But where is she supposed to get the candy from? Then the girl hears that chocolate bars are supposedly falling from the sky at Tempelhofer Feld. Can this be real? In a dream, she meets an American pilot who busily builds little parachutes and equips them with bars of chocolate. They become friends. But was it all just a dream? Sometimes dreams come true…
