Brief synopsis

The German theatre landscape became a world heritage in 2014 due to its extensive spread throughout the country. At the same time, in the small town Neustrelitz (a one-time ‘royal capital’) Frank Mösel casts his fishing rod – but takes no bait: ‘With the grand duke’s we had a theatre. With the Nazi’s we had a theatre. With the communist’s we also had a theatre! And now, in the big, rich German Federal Republic, a theatre wouldn't be possible anymore? Am I in the wrong film?’ He’s a locksmith at Neustrelitz theatre, never has his 30-year-long employment been more in danger than today. Since the German reunion in 1990 the theatre is marginalized, receiving less and less money from the public government. The threatening end leaves traces: motivational ones at the participants, in life careers, in the self-image of the town.
