Secret operations unit "Spree" was the sequel to the scout films “Secret operations unit Boomerang” (1966) and “Secret operations unit Ciupaga” (1967). In the spring of 1945 it was definitive: the final defeat of fascist Germany was inevitable, only a few weeks left, then the Hitler regime would be history. But it still fights back, and in Berlin, which is characterized by debris fields and streams of refugees, the Wehrmacht High Command "soldiers" move in: men, children, the elderly and even the wounded are obliged to work to give the inmates of the Chancellery bunker a few more days of survival. From Dresden, Saxony, two men started the “trip” to Berlin with one of the last trains still in motion. They wear uniforms of the Wehrmacht, like almost everyone else on the train, but they are representatives of the National Committee Free Germany: Bernd Roland (Otto Mellies) and Toni Burian (Horst Weinheimer). They are in great danger while driving, when a squad from the general police checks papers and marching orders in the compartments. (Source: Fernsehen der DDR)
