„If Paris is France, then Coney Island is the entire world from June to September“, is how George C. Tilyou – the builder of the legendary Steeplechase Park – described Coney Island. A sparkling amusement institution in New York´s West End, colourful and fantastic. That´s how it used to be. Coney Island´s entertainment district is supposed to be sold to a major investor, who plans to erect a Las Vegas-style artificial world. With the destruction of these old amusement sites, New York does not only lose part of its history, but also living spaces and workplaces for hundreds of people. For them it is the basis of their very existence. The film accompanies the Coney Islanders through the last weeks of their probably final season.
