Even in a hospice life goes on. Danka, a cleaning lady, cleans 15 rooms overlooking Berlin Neukölln. There's a lot of laughter and a lot of smoking, but also a lot of goodbyes. A mother-in-law may be annoying. A stuffed animal offers consolation. The recollection of missed opportunities may create a sense of loss. Danka, the institution's cleaning lady, experiences a lot in the course of her daily life, tidying up these 15 rooms overlooking the roofs of Neukölln. She is always happy to spend time with the residents, or just to keep them company. FIFTEEN ROOMS is a documentary about living in a place of dying.
