German law permits only a certain amount of square metres per person if you are claiming unemployment and housing benefit. The idea is to close-off one room in a flat in a small city in the east of Germany, which adheres to these size restrictions. From this point in time, the locked room does not belong to the flat anymore. But what does this unused room stand for?

The film captures moments, describes underlying feelings, needs and hopes that are connected with this locked room. Even though it is empty now, the room is filled with stories.
