The untold story about wild rabbits living between the Berlin Walls. For 28 years the death strip was their safest home. Plenty of grass, no predators, guards protecting them. They were enclosed but happy. Unfortunately, one day the wall came down. Rabbits had to abandon the comfortable system. They moved to West Berlin and have been living there ever since. They are still learning how to live in the free world, in much the same way as the citizens of Eastern Europe.
