Mr Gorbachev, Tear Down This Wall

The Wolff Family flees East Berlin and settles ins a Dallas Suburb.  The father builds a memorial wall  with pieces of the Berlin Wall.  Each Saturday, Horst, the son,  picks up beer bottles, old pizza boxes and other trash and the stuffed animals or flowers that some people in memory of a friend or loved one.  Their neighbor detests the wall as an eye sore and a right wing anti-immigrant group stages demonstrations. Mrs. Wolff decides the neighborly thing to do is to take down the wall.
