In this mostly dialogue-free slice-of-life experimental black-and-white film, a kitchen worker in Berlin goes about his everyday life around Christmastime, while at the same time a home health worker goes about hers. Each of them inhabits a part of the city that tourists seldom see, amid traffic noises and groups of Christmas carolers. Though their world is dreary and gray, this day is eventful for both of the main characters, and they experience several memorable events before finally encountering one another in the final moments of the film, during which they begin a conversation.
