Hossein (played by Parviz Sayyad) is a Turkish migrant worker who works in a pressing factory in West Germany. After work, he takes the metro to the Kreuzberg neighborhood in Berlin, where he lives in a residential complex with several of his fellow countrymen. They, unable to connect with the people and the environment around them, lead a monotonous and melancholic life.
