A documentary set in Berlin about people who are active at nighttime. The film looks at the many the different angles of what it means to live and work in darkness. Some people work and live at night by choice, others because fate has compelled them to do so. Still others use darkness to operate in secret. At time when most of the city is asleep, the film accompanies the night active as they go about their business and sheds light on the essence of night in today’s big cities. Director Ivette Löcker's declaration of love for the night.
