Every tenant’s worst nightmare becomes reality for a senior citizen couple in Munich when their new landlady hands them a notice to vacate their apartment. Finding a new place to live is virtually impossible. When a bailiff arrives at their door and threatens to evict them, they find themselves robbed not only of their apartment, but also of their dignity. This film was honored with the 2022 Student Academy Award.
