As a boy, Philipp was strongly attracted to his best friend, but he's put that behind him in order to live within the "norm". He meets a shy girl who falls hard for him, and soon the couple is sharing an apartment. But Philipp cannot deny his passionate desire for a young man he meets in a concert ticket line. 'Coming Out' maps Philipp's liberating journey toward saying "yes" to his truest sell. Hailed as the first (and only) feature film about gay life ever produced in communist East Germany, 'Coming Out' premiered on the very night the Berlin Wall came down.
