Deutschland 83 is a German language thriller made for TV, which has broken records in the U.K. as the highest rated foreign language TV show in the history of television. The story focuses on the life of an East German border patrol guard, Martin Rauch, who is sent to West Germany by his aunt who is a senior member of the East German government. At the outset of the 1980s-set thriller members of the East German government are concerned about the increasing military presence building up under U.S. authority in West Germany. Martin Rauch is approached to enter West Germany under the pseudonym Moritz Stamm, and with the code name Hummingbird. Once the spy has entered West Germany with the aid of the Stasi he is sent on a series of missions that place him in increasing amounts of danger. As Martin is dragged further into his role as a spy he becomes worried about the health of his mother, and the growing threat of nuclear war he is slowly uncovering through his work. Martin finds himself slowly beginning to question the role he is playing and who he believes will serve humanity the best during the last years of the Cold War.
