Wallflower is four hours in the life of Molly Lenzfeld, sixteen-year-old New Yorker in Berlin. It’s Thanksgiving Day 1989, two weeks after the fall of the Wall. Molly, the daughter of a German-Jewish­mother who fled the Nazis in 1938, is off to her mother’s birth house in East Berlin. On the train to Prenzlauer Berg, wallflower Molly meets East German wildflower Mick Maier, nineteen. It’s love at first sight. For both it’s a journey into an unknown land and a world deep below the city’s streets — a fertile terrain in which to discover each other, the absurdities of the divided city, and of course, the wonder of love.
