Der Turm décrit les sept dernières années de la RDA avant la chute du mur dans l’univers d’une famille bourgeoise de Dresde, les Hoffmann. Le père est chirurgien, il assiste sans broncher à la dégradation du système de santé et à celui d’une société gangrenée par la peur. L’oncle est éditeur, il doit se soumettre à la censure en se contentant, avec une ironie froide, de profiter des privilèges que lui octroie le Parti. Quant au fils, Christian, il interrompt ses études de médecine pour faire son service militaire : son goût pour la liberté et son insolence lui vaudront la prison, puis les travaux forcés ; une descente aux enfers qui condamnera sa famille à un lent naufrage, à la fois tragique et absurde.

At the Central Park Zoo, Marty the zebra is celebrating his tenth birthday, but longs to see the rest of the world from outside his pampered life at the zoo, believing that he can find wide-open spaces to run around in, like in Connecticut. Marty's best friend, Alex the lion, attempts to cheer up his friend by singing Frank Sinatra's "New York, New York" with him. Still unsatisfied, Marty gets some tips from the zoo's penguins: Skipper, Kowalski, Rico, and Private. The penguins are similarly trying to escape the zoo. Marty's friends — Alex the lion, Melman the giraffe, and Gloria the hippopotamus — realize Marty's folly and try to follow him. The four, along with the penguins and the chimpanzees Mason and his silent friend Phil, eventually find themselves at Grand Central Station, but are quickly sedated by tranquilizer darts when Alex's attempt to communicate with humans is mistaken for aggression. The zoo, under pressure from animal-rights activists, is forced to ship the animals, by sea, to a Kenyan wildlife preserve. During their travels, the penguins escape from their enclosure and take over the ship, intent on taking it to Antarctica. Their antics on the bridge cause the crates containing Alex, Marty, Melman, and Gloria to fall off the boat and wash ashore on Madagascar.
