Deutschland 83 (SundanceTV) “Brave Guy” Episode 2

Deutschland 83 “Brave Guy” Episode 2 airs Wednesday, June 24 at 11:00PM ET/PT on SundanceTV. In tonight’s episode, just as Martin Rauch is beginning to enjoy his new life in the West, he is ordered by Tischbier to break into NATO head analyst Hendrik Mayer’s hotel room to steal a top secret security report. He refuses to do so until Tischbier promises to help his mother, Ingrid, who is suffering from diabetes back home in East Germany, where treatment is scarce. When Martin finally steals the NATO report, his superiors in East Berlin cannot read it because it’s not saved on paper, but rather on a floppy disk. This technological hiccup turns into a humiliating struggle to keep up in the dawning era of the computer, a key example of the diverging paths of Communism and Capitalism.

East German Secret Service employee, Lenora Rauch, sends her nephew, Martin, to West Germany against his will to become an undercover spy as an aid to a top officer, General Edel. He receives intensive training from field operative Tobias Tischbier, and arrives at the army base under a new identity: Officer Moritz Stamm. His job is to collect intelligence on NATO plans to station American nuclear missiles in West Germany.

Show Summary: DEUTSCHLAND 83 is a gripping coming-of-age story set against the real culture wars and political events of Germany in the 1980s. The drama follows Martin Rauch (Jonas Nay) as the 24 year-old East Germany native is pulled from the world as he knows it and sent to the West as an undercover spy for the Stasi foreign service. Hiding in plain sight in the West German army, he must gather the secrets of NATO military strategy. Everything is new, nothing is quite what it seems and everyone he encounters is harboring secrets, both political and personal.
