still / picture for The House Besides The Trail


The women's shelter in Stuttgart: 50 rooms, 50 residents, 50 destinies - and in the background the rattle of the trains. Sylvia wants to get out of the shelter and back to her own apartment. Carola loves the place like her home, especially her view from the window. Gabi has come to terms with the situation and has started to make art. All women have one thing in common: at one point in their lives they were without a roof over their heads and ended up in a shelter.

Encounters with special women in a special place.
