Germany, 2003

The camping site "Himmelreich" is located on an island in the lake. Ralf, a former homeless man, Peter, a retired truck driver and Heinz Sander, a former kiosk owner and sailor, live on the site all year round. Among them lives Gaby, who is a secret to the men. Between their caravans is an old cinema. "Dirty Dancing" was the last big hit. Reason enough to put it back into operation after so many years. A little love story.
