People in Berlin
A kaleidoscope of images of the city and its people. The main characters are three immigrants and a native Berlin woman. The Slovenian 'butterfly man' sees Berlin as a hunting ground for insects. Two Congolese brothers mourn their father's death, a comrade of Patrice Lumumba. The aged Eva-Maria, once a fashion model, runs a fur shop in a poor district among jobless immigrants. However different they may be, they're all citizens of this multicultural city.
