Aileen (16), Angel (23) and Daniel (25) escaped the remnants of their families and the confines of their small towns to the anonymity of the Berlin metropolis. Their new space of action is the area around Zoo Station. They prostitute themselves to support their drug addiction. At night, they find shelter in halfway houses, in the homes of acquaintances or with regular clients. They have hopes and dreams and a vague plans for their lives, but one which remains a construction site, much like their world, in which they are constantly forced to establish themselves anew: a world of transitions, unstable in-betweens, the highways, the back ways, the stores, niches, and places of transit.
