The groundsman of the FC St. Pauli is just about to finish his work, when he suddenly finds a dead fan on the grandstand of the stadium. And even after the funeral, the groundskeeper is not allowed to rest. The ghost of the dead man haunts him and makes him realize, that the motto of the football club is more than just a stadium song: "You'll never walk alone"...
