At first glance Dormagen is a perfect, green and pastoral town just a short distance from the big city. Its residents opened the gates of the city with love to the stream of refugees that filled Germany, but the warm welcome carries with it a hidden fear from the future. On one bus line that crosses the entire city you can see a social microcosm. From refugees who have just arrived to adult Germans, all are destined to travel in the metal pipe that creates forced intimacy. Through the stories of the passengers on this bus line, the whole story of Germany after the wave of immigration is told.
