Paul is 16 years old and earns his pocket money working the streets. Fleeting
encounters shape his daily routine, until he comes across a group of teenagers that
teach him the lesson that nobody can run away from their problems. But Paul has made
a pact. A pact with some ants. An „Ameisenpakt,“ which questions the strict patterns of
our reality. The boundaries between reality and imagination are shaking and Paul
creates himself a world in which he feels at home.
