St. Pauli Nacht
Filled with promising ambitions, shattered dreams, love and revenge and in the end…hope, the story reveals how tangibly interconnected our individual fates really are.
Starting with Johnny, we are immediately thrust into a series of random events and chance encounters which alter the destiny of everyone involved, some for the better, and some for the worse.
As one character’s fate is followed to its climax as a result of the interaction with the next character, we jump back in time to understand what events in their evening had sent them on such a fateful collision course.
The further we are drawn into the web of personal entanglements, the greater is our feel for the color and texture that comprise the fabric of a single night in the exotic red-light district known St. Pauli.
