Der Fackelträger

DDR 1955-1957 Spielfilm

Summary

Senior prosecutor Sänger from West Berlin has only one aim, which is to finally get assigned to the Federal Court of Justice. In order to achieve his goal, all he needs is a sensational lawsuit. He finds it when his drunken janitor rampages in a suburban train and gets arrested by the East Berlin railway police and thrown into a drunk tank. Sänger sues Johannes Müller, who has handed the janitor over to the police, for abduction of a West German citizen. The lawsuit meets with great media interest. Sänger, however, miserably fails and looses the case.
