Summary:
"In 1974, [Alexander] Kluge and good friend Edgar Reitz [known for the Heimat series] roamed Frankfurt for ten days with a camera capturing life in the city at that time -- the political demonstrations, carnival fun, and debate within the congress for the SPD Party. Kluge interweaves the real-life footage with fictional threads about two very different women. One woman seduces men, sleeps with them, and then robs them blind; the other is a spy from the Eastern bloc." -- Container.
