A group of former student revolutionaries meets to reminisce and view old newsreels of their protest years. Three people in the group -- a husband and wife (and their child), plus a friend -- have moved into an abandoned railroad station near Cologne, intent on staying there for keeps. One of the men is a filmmaker who, in the course of his work, encounters some verses about an old fighter at the wall before a firing squad saying good-bye to his friends - and he is haunted by his former days of revolutionary ardor. Next, he runs into a scientist and the two discuss infinity and the beginnings of the universe. This "larger picture" transforms the vision of the filmmaker as he makes his plans for his own future and rethinks his past.
