Castle on the borrder is set in postwar Germany on the new border drawn between East and West. A young actress,Leni, decides to come and help an elderly aunt and uncle make an old castle habitable for the winter. She enlists the aid of a troop of actors, who have no place to stay themselves. Leni has lost most of her family during the war, and in this old castle she rebuilds her life, falls in love and finds peace. A subplot is the care the actors give to refugees who hide in the castle cellar on their flight from East Germany to the West.
