Film Info: Innenleben

Inner Life (Innenleben)

The ticket machine works as usual. Always endeavored to keep order, the ticket woman spends her days inside the ticket machine, giving out tickets to people with tired faces. The people don’t suspect anything of her existence, until a street sweeper forces her to get in contact with the outside world. But this isn’t very easy when fear and uncertainty prevent the jump into life.
