In 1989 a group of some 30 activists acquires a property and the ruin of what used to be the largest coffin factory in the times of the former Austrian-Hungarian monarchy. Step by step they turn it into a unique and exceptionally housing project with 112 flats, a kindergarten, a restaurant and a public bath. On historic video footage from the mid-eighties and in their very inspiring interviews the founders – together with the witty architect Johnny Winter – take us on a little tour through time. The protagonists give us an inspiring and diverse view of their common vision. The protagonists tell us about the exhausting process of decisionmaking and the permanent fight for participation in the ongoing building process. The movie shows a encouraging example of participative, collective owned housing. At the end we are confronted with the question: „Can we still turn such an idealistic plan into build reality?”
