Starfighter

TV MOVIE (2015)

 

Inspired by true events: Germany in the „Swinging Sixties“ – a time of free movement of people. The economic boom is underway, the belief in progress is unbroken. In the middle of the “Cold War”, the still young German Federal Armed Forces purchase, by the order of defense minister Franz-Josef Strauß, the world’s most modern fighter jet: the Starfighter. It’s tight to a billion Mark deal.

One of the biggest scandals in Germany’s postwar history follows this event. 262 jets of the 916 ordered Stafighters crash and 116 pilots lose their lives.

Based on these events, the movie tells the story of a woman who fights for justice for the decease pilots and their widows. She also battles for her true love and against a seemingly insurmountable alliance of politics, economy and military.
