St. Pauli Nacht

St. Pauli Nacht

Sometimes your fate lies in the hands of those you meet.
St. Pauli Nacht is the fast-paced story of one single, eventful night in the infamous red-light harbor district of Hamburg. The film follows the lives and loves - and deaths - of a handful of the more colorful denizens of St. Pauli. Filled with promising ambitions, shattered dreams, love and revenge and in the end hope, the story reveals how tangibly interconnected our induividual fates really are. The further we are drawn into the web of personal entanglements, the greater is our feel for the color and texture that compromise the fabric of a single night in the exotic red-light district known as St. Pauli.
