Just a few years previously, Dani, Rico, Paul and Mark had still been schoolchildren in the GDR (East Germany), subject to ideological constraints, but also secure in their manageable daily lives. After German reunification, there no longer seem to be any rules. The friends enjoy their private anarchy, go out at night in Leipzig, speed through night-time streets in stolen cars drunk, take drugs, run riot and enjoy their acts of vandalism. As We Were Dreaming tells the story of a lost generation that unknowingly became the victim of reunification.
