The Yugoslav immigrant Dragan Wende used to be the street king of West-Berlin’s 1970s hedonistic disco scene. Along with his friends, he roamed the nightclubs on both sides of the Wall. But when the Wall fell, everything changed. Dragan has not set foot in East Berlin for the past 20 years and has no intention to do so. A microcosm of underdogs and their survival strategies unfolds as a tragicomedy in a still-divided city.
