A film by Leopold Lummerstorfer

A 1996, Dolby Stereo, 35mm, 1:1,66, 155 Min., German with subtitles

Synopsis

Austria's largest housing complex erected in one building stage is situated in the Northeast of Vienna. It lies on the former premises of a horse racetrack and comprises 2.400 flats. 59 blocks and long hall-like corridors lead more than 8.000 people to their living rooms: The film offers glimpses into the lives of more than 20 people - the life of an individual behind one of the countless doors. These lives in their entirety make up the overall picture of a society: What it's like to wake up in such surroundings, and what perspectives there are for a coming day.
