The beginning of the year are favorable for balance sheets and the series Deutschland 86, sequel to Deutschland 83 (Movistar Seriesmanía), allows to value a time that was and is no longer. In other words, the end of a dream turned into a nightmare.
Martin Rauch is a young man educated and orthodox in the German Democratic Republic to perform a job that the political hierarchy considers essential: the spy. Naturally, espionage is linked to the economy. The GDR suffered the massive flight of citizens to the Federal Republic of Germany: three million Germans had already escaped from the "socialist paradise" when in August 1961 it was decided to euphemistically call the "Antifascist Wall of Protection", with Soviet tutelage .
That bleeding deteriorated the national economy to unimaginable extremes. His intelligence services worked on internal repression and obtaining foreign currency at whatever price. It is in that second objective where the random life of Martin Rauch is located: South Africa, Angola, a Maghrebi desert, Paris and West Berlin will be some scenarios. Illegal trafficking in arms, the rental of human guinea pigs to pharmaceutical companies in the Federal Republic of Germany or any other nonsense will be justified by the nomenklatura for the sake of a revolution that never came and that added the country to a prolonged agony.
On November 9, 1989, 28 years after being erected, the Berlin Wall was demolished. Maybe the hypothetical third season of the functional series, Deutschland 89, leave a record of the end of that nightmare through which the life of a young man educated in the belief of the New Man went to land in a reality hidden by its leaders. His citizenship will undoubtedly prove that the other paradise, the western one, also hides its miseries, for example, that a democratic city council that boasted patriotism illegally sold officially protected flats to American vulture funds. The nightmare continues.
