Synopsis

In 1974, Alexander Kluge and Edgar Reitz roamed Frankfurt for ten days with a small crew, capturing life in the city at that time: the political demonstrations, carnival fun, and debate within the SPD Party’s Congress. Interwoven to these are bizarre fictional situations and spy story parodies.
