Scene from HOME (photo © filoufilm/Silke Abendschein)

Heiko is in his early 30's, the son of a peasant family. When he loses his job in his village in the Erzgebirge (the Ore Mountains) he moves to the next big city. But there he is a mere observer of city life and remains alone in spite of his new job. When he realizes his interchangeability once more, he makes a decision.
