The block. One year, 2005. A small town, somewhere in Germany – Gräfenhainichen. A street in the town – Poetenweg. 85 identical one-room flats. Four doors open to us. Inside, two women and two men. Four generations; four different states of loss and loneliness. Outside, scrawled in the hallway the block. People here say this house is alive. THE BLOCK, a TV movie about four people, life and how it leaves them.
