Documentary film Superheroes

Figures disguised as comic-book heroes rob delis and distribute their plunder to kindergartens; a student holding down three part-time jobs empties the rubbish bin from the bio-supermarket so as to be able to give her children a proper meal: this film, set in Hamburg, tells the story of these superheroes; it is the story of the precarious lives of middle-class youths, a story of conformity and resignation, and one of visions and spectacular deeds.
