On the streets of Hamburg‘s skid row St. Pauli, we meet Ewa (Elga Schütz), an elderly homeless lady with a secret. The former actress spends her days collecting bottles for spare change. When night falls, she sneaks onto the stage of THEATRE REEPERBAHN, where she once worked long ago. But she has to be careful, the theatre‘s new director (Laura Ehrich) doesn‘t like intruders. When Ewa meets Mats (Nils van der Horst), a young man with a broken camera, it seems like once more, her life could change completely.
