It’s Paul’s birthday. He is 37 and at a point in his life, where he has reached everything he had wished for: professional reputation, a well achieved peer group, a beautiful wife with a baby on the way, and a tasteful apartment with a view on Berlin's "Tempelhofer Feld" - the newly opened park and former airfield - in the middle of the city. He feels like he has finally arrived... Or at least that's what he keeps telling himself. But the events of this day take a very unexpected turn, when Paul meets a stranger in the park who tells him to "open his ears". Paul must face reality.
