Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Street waif Sally (Jane Eggertsen) hides out on the seventeenth floor of a modern Danish tenement, hence the film's title. She almost manages to make a living recycling various trash items. In this way, she avoids the dangers of street life. Sally comes into contact with an equally streetwise Turkish immigrant girl (Mia El Mousti) with a talent for playing the accordion. The two join forces as street musicians. They have fun and make good money, but the good times are ended when the Turkish girl's parents take her back home for an arranged marriage.
