Two couples in their late thirties in the not exactly exciting city of Frankfurt/Oder, East Germany. Theyre set in their ways, with nowhere to go. Radio host Chris and his second wife Katrin dont have much to say to each other anymore. Uwe, his friend, slaves away day and night in his own hot-dog stall, but forgets his wife and kids. Small surprise, then, that Ellen and Chris, who is urgently looking for change, come closer. When theyre caught in the act, everyone is shaken from their stupor. Their bogged-down existence gets a jump-start, and suddenly it becomes clear that small miracles are possible even in a place like Frankfurt/Oder, if only you believe in them.
