Movement from breath to breath ('body') into existential experiences from the Berlin night. The film essay portrays in short episodes people who are awake for various professional or private reasons, or who have to be awake in all the darkness of the city. They tell their personal stories of "standstill", their moments of "holding one's breath" - out of fear or happiness.
