    Cinematographer Michael Ballhaus, returned from Hollywood to Berlin and no longer recognized his native city. Together with colleague Ciro Cappellari, he rediscovers his hometown, 20 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall. The result is a lyrical film essay about the metropolis and the people whose skills, talent and ambition make it such a unique city: less hectic and glamorous than Paris or New York, but possibly more stimulating.

    In this cinematic declaration of love to Berlin, Michael Ballhaus and Ciro Cappellari, capture the unique atmosphere of a city that still bears the marks of immense suffering, but continues to forges ahead with untamable energy and unflagging self-confidence.
