East Berlin, 1988. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Republic, a big birthday show is being rehearsed at the Friedrichstadt-Palast. In these exciting hours, young dancer Christine suddenly comes face to face with her doppelganger. In the audience sits Marlene, a businesswoman from West Germany, and the twin sister she knew nothing about. In this fateful moment, two worlds, which could not be more different, suddenly collide. To find out about their respective lives in the East and the West, the two sisters swap places, taking enormous risks and pushing their emotions to the limit yet still having great fun in this adventure of a lifetime…

This lavish, highly entertaining tentpole production was shot at the world’s biggest theater stage. THE PALACE is directed by Uli Edel (“The Baader Meinhof Complex”) and stars Svenja Jung (“Deutschland 89”), Daniel Donskoy (“Victoria”, “The Crown”) and Heino Ferch (“Ku’Damm”, “Downfall”).
