Phillip is a roving German reporter who, after a chance encounter with an elusive American woman, reluctantly accepts temporary custody of little Alice.

Their friendship grows while traveling through various European cities on a search for the girl´s grandmother. Inventive and witty, ALICE IN THE CITIES reflects on the influences of American pop culture on postwar Europe.
