Starting in Poland, the Round Tables were established after the collapse of socialism to facilitate social transition with all its conflicts and visions. Representatives of the government, the opposition, state institutions and other social groups gathered to develop ideas for the further development of politics. The film follows the chronology of events in the GDR at that time, focusing on their immediate dynamic from September 1989 to the end of March 1990. The events of this peaceful revolution are brought to life by way of contemporary material, photographs and documentary footage. 30 protagonists who sat at these Round Tables themselves get to speak, ranging from Matthias Platzeck, Lothar de Maizière and film maker Konrad Weiß, to Gerd Poppe and Sylvia Kabus. This is not only a contemporary document, but also an invitation to rediscover and newly discover a political culture that used a previously unheard dialogue at eye level as a key development instrument.
