„Annelie“ is an old boarding house in Munich that has long since fallen into disrepair. When paying customers stopped coming, it was leased by the City as temporary accommodation for homeless people and welfare cases. But "temporary" has turned into more than a decade for some residents, and the long wait has inevitably brought some strange characters together. Max is one of them. He used to be an actor, a child star in fact, but now he’s a junkie. Another resident runs a struggling kiosk, and his other half keeps them both in the black by selling her body. In 2012, the City decides to close „Annelie“ down. The unlikely „Annelie“ family must pull together: With the determination of people who have nothing left to lose, they kidnap a famous rock band. The story builds to a bizarre climax in which bitter reality reveals itself to be a fleeting dream.
