Filmmaker Douglas Wolfsperger, who grew up in Constance, accompanies the disappearance of one of the last arthouse cinemas on Lake Constance, which had a strong influence on his own career. The "Scala Filmpalast" in Constance was a cinema with an 80-year tradition. In 2017, a branch of the dm drugstore chain moved into the building, although another drug store was already located directly opposite. What happens when places where we dream become places where we buy? Who owns a city anyway, and what kind of environment should shape future generations? "In these 80 minutes of film about a provincial town, Wolfsperger develops a panorama about culture and economy, municipal felt and citizen participation, film enjoyment and luxury problems that actually concerns everyone."
