Synopsis

Do you have the perfect flat? A little study with unusual insights. The film deals with the problem that there are a lot of so-called "satellite towns" in all big cities of Germany. These areas always have a bad reputation, because people say that there is a lot of crime, drugs and of course too many immigrants.

This film is one 360-degree turn through mostly all flats of one of the so-called "bad" houses in a "satellite town". You'll see the families living there and what they have to say according to the bad reputation of their area and what does it mean to them: home.
