The pride of East Germany's Stasi secret police, Gerd Wiesler's legendary efficiency is put to use once more when his superiors order him to surveil the apartment of playwright Georg Dreyman and his beautiful girlfriend Christa-Maria. As he listens to the couple's daily life, Wiesler becomes overly involved in their private affairs. When he discovers that a high-ranking official ordered the surveillance so he could steal Christa-Maria away from Dreyman, Wiesler secretly begins to help the couple. However, Dreyman begins to engage in subversive activities, and Wiesler must put his career on the line to save him.
