In Cologne’s subway station „Köln-Chorweiler“ are big black and white portraits of several people. Although these persons obviously have been pictured in their home, presenting a part of their private life, there’s nothing else told about them. Director Sandra Jakisch wanted to know, which individuals and destinies are behind those pictures and what happened to that persons until today.

They all have in common to live in Chorweiler, which is a satellite town at the suburbs of Cologne and with 40.000 apartments the biggest estate of prefabricated houses in Nordrhein-Westfalen. The documentary gives insights into the live of several people and shines a light on different destinies in such a uniform environment.
