A life without cinema is possible, but pointless. True to this motto, Erika and Ulrich Gregor have been traveling the world since 1957, finding unusual films and bringing them to Berlin. In an associative montage, film history, West German and contemporary Berlin history are combined with the present life of the Gregors and statements of many of their companions. Filmmakers such as Helke Sander, Jutta Brückner, Wim Wenders, Jim Jarmusch, Rosa von Praunheim, Doris Dörrie, Michael Verhoeven, Edgar Reitz, Alexander Kluge, Gerd Conradt and Volker Schlöndorff talk about the influence the Gregors had on them personally, painting a vivid picture of film culture, from the 1960s and 1970s through New German Cinema to international Independent classics. Footage and film clips from 40 films take us on a journey through 70 years of cinema history, gaining insights into the everyday life of this important film couple, who have been married for more than 60 years and who still work together every day.
