MAU MAU is situated appropriate in the middle of the red light district. Whenever night falls on the city, the joint starts leaping in MAU MAU. Pimping, stripping, ripping off and grifting would be the order of the time. Sometimes it's all really agreeable and sometimes all hell breaks loose. Parties and snivelling go hand in hand right here. In this globe of the marooned, the tripping and those who have actually gotten back once again on their feet, the film traces the lifelines of Inge and Heinz, of Rosa and Doris and of Ferdi and Ali on their search for enjoy, joy and life. "If I had the option of shooting in paradise or hell," states Uwe Schrader, "then I'd select hell".
