The author Sasha Anderson, in the 1980th political model and popstar for the creative GDR-Undergrounds, is unmasked in 1991 as a Stasi spy of the first rank. A scandal. From the surname only remained “A” and not a few complemented: “sshole”.
The film tells about the double life of Sasha Anderson between system criticizer and betrayal.
ANDERSON is the second part of the “betrayal trilogy” of Annekatrin Hendel. As before TRAITOR TO THE COUNTRY (perspective German cinema 2011, fury price in 2013) also ANDERSON draws an unusual multi-layered picture of the situation in the GDR.
