The lives of a cowboy and a communist collide when Walter Potts, an artist and chef from LA opens his late night burlesque burger bar, ‘White Trash Fast Food’ in the bottom floor of an East Berlin apartment block where East German journalist Horst Woitalla has lived since the Communist era. Horst is determined to close down ‘White Trash Fast Food’ and take back something he lost when the Berlin Wall fell.
