A Film by Claire Walka

Synopsis

DOORS
Henning has been working as a bouncer in St. Pauli for more than 15 years. Some people think that all bouncers are stupid and violent, but Henning went to University and writes satirical short stories. His humour and his empathy are a big help to solve conflicts without escalation. Standing at club doors he has always felt a bit like a teacher – and he eventually started to train as an educator. Now he also works in a psychiatric ward with teenagers addicted to drugs or computer games. In both of his jobs, Henning finds himself face to face with people on the abyss. The young people and the partygoers are all under growing pressure. Instead of addressing their problems, they often opt for the easy way out – taking refuge in a parallel world of drugs, alcohol, and other forms of addiction.
