Brief synopsis

Leipzig, southern suburb. A completely normal apartment building. The people who live here are interchangeable. There is a curfew. One should stay at home. There is silence where children's screams can usually be heard in the yard behind the house. The doors in the hallway remain locked. How are my neighbours above me? What does the retired couple below me think? What is the flat share at the bottom of the ground floor doing? Personal contact is prohibited.
The only communication channel is the telephone. The documentary film vividly paints a differentiated picture of the corona pandemic, shaped by personal perception. Everyone in the house has their own way of dealing with the situation. Apart from Corona news, one hardly hears anything else. Whatever else the politicians decide is going down.
