Bernd and Zoltan live in Munich under a bridge called “Wittelsbacherbrücke“. They keep themselves above water by collecting deposit bottles and by their sculptures made of snow, which the passersby along the river Isar give money for. Several months the director accompanies the protagonists, whose situation is fundamentally changing during this time. Bernd takes a path that seems to lead him out of homelessness, but also Zoltan is forced to leave his camp.
