While everyone else is watching soccer, 74 years old Mevla W. is fighting to keep her apartment. She lives in 3 rooms in a central neighborhood in Berlin. She has been living here since 1985, and she doesn’t see why she should accept to move to a 2 or even 1 room flat.

But her landlord has his own interests. With her gripper arm and handwritten letters to all existing Berlin courthouses, Ms. W. tries all she can to avoid losing her environment and moving into a„cage“.

A noir-ish film scene in Berlin, 1944. Underground resistance fighter Wolfgang gives a beautiful spy, Juliette, an important document to take back to Paris. They'll never see each other again, but their mission is too important to let feelings get in the way. The scene pauses on Wolfgang as a dubbing director's voice explains, in German, the plot of the movie to the German voice of Wolgang. But as the German dubber begins to record a new voice and language for Wolfgang's face, the actor looks into the camera and upsets the entire process. He changes his rhythm and even dialogue to stop the dubbing actor from "stealing" his voice. From now on, the German dubber must work to dodge the English actor's new mannerisms and catch up to his mouth to earn his place in the movie.
