The film tells the story of three friends and their long years of drug addiction in a small village in the Mansfelder region of East Germany. It tells of Helbra as it was “back then”, and as it is today. It tells of its inhabitants, who miss something which has disappeared: the centuries-old mining industry. It tells of an everyday ride, a ride that “takes hold” of you and “fades out everything around you”; a ride to Halle, to the railway station and to the heroin, “where everything leaves you”.
