The Palace

Presented by Global Screen (A Telepool Brand)


Also known as Der Palast, a lavish, highly entertaining period drama, richly shot at the world’s biggest theater stage located in Berlin: the iconic Friedrichstadt-Palast. Against this evocative backdrop, in a divided Germany, two women are searching for their roots in a richly shot, moving and life-affirming story. East Berlin, 1988. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Republic, a big birthday show is being rehearsed at the Friedrichstadt-Palast. In these exciting hours, young dancer Christine suddenly comes face-to-face with her doppelganger. In the audience sits Marlene, a businesswoman from West Germany, and the twin sister she knew nothing about. In this fateful moment, two worlds, which could not be more different, suddenly collide. To find out about their respective lives in the East and the West, the two sisters swap places.
