Three families sit at one table - one Russian, one Polish and one German. What stories are told? What did the parents experience when they were as old as their children now? Which political events, which social upheavals have shaped their biographers? Perhaps the Germans talk about the fall of the Berlin Wall, the Poles about the beginning of the "Third Polish Republic", the Russians about the first free elections - all this happened exactly 30 years ago. In family stories, politics and history become personal and concrete.
In the summer and autumn of 2019, six Polish, six Russian and six German youths each will travel to Warsaw, Moscow and Berlin to talk to their parents about the time 30 years ago. The result will be a theatrical evening about what has shaped, separated and united us a generation after 1989. And about what moves us in the three countries in the face of today's crises.
