Description:
A chance meeting between a teenage orphan and a psychiatric patient triggers a reflection on ghosts - the spirits of those who refuse to believe they're dead. They haunt the realms in between life and death, hoping that love will help them regain life.

A man travels from Paris to Berlin in search of his wife. He finds her in a psychiatric hospital in Spandau and takes her back to Paris. Every year, the wife makes the journey to Berlin, desperately searching for her daughter who was abducted at the age of three. The wife meets a young vagabond named Nina. A drifter who doesn't seem to have a home of her own, Nina roams about the city, taking the world as it comes. The wife is convinced that Nina is her lost daughter.

"Ghosts are about three women - the French mother, the thief Toni and the young Nina. All three are carrying stories withing them, not knowing exactly whether they are invented. All three dream of finding a story that gives them security, an identity, a viewpoint. But all these stories are no longer conceivable. " (Christian Petzold)
