The film portrays the exciting history of Bauhaus as the formulation, the failure and the renewal of a utopia for society. But it also presents current social, conceptual and artistic projects and relates them to the history of Bauhaus. The film uses this frame of a huge, visionary project to ask the questions that matter today: how do we want to live, where do we want to go from here?
