Life in the anonymous Berlin concrete building "Excelsior" is only a short stopover for its residents - which for some has lasted for more than 50 years.
Very soon, life is going to get better and everyone is trying to find their own way: With "Invisible Make-up", 49-year-old Michael wants to build on earlier successes as an gay escort. Claudia's time as a dancer is over, but new photos are to pave her way back on stage. Norman wants to help other people to happiness with his start-up "ChangeU", and himself to a chic sports car. Hardly anyone succeeds in escaping the charms of a successful society.
