Adela Addison's father and brother snuck across the Berlin Wall and into Eastern Germany to help her dying aunt. That was five agonizing years ago, and Adela is now 10. She has written each of them a letter since she was five; stashing them under her bed. Eastern Germany is rising up while Western Germany is progressing much more slower. Will Adela's curiousity make her cross that wall to see her father, or will she stay on her side of a wall. When will her father return? Will her father return?
