Prison discharges Hans into a freedom as inhospitable as the winter weather. As a stranger, he strays in familiar streets, bars, flies to a friend in Berlin.

Always fleeing from invisible enemies.
Always on the way to an indeterminate goal.

Wenders' graduation film for the Academy of Film and Television marked out Wenders' innovative and individual style, which was to become such a recognizable characteristic of his later films.



"The hero's path is at once an escape route and a way of finding himself through the medium of travel."
