Clara leaves her home and her alcoholic husband behind and arrives with her two sons in snowy New York. They don't have much more than the car and then it is suddenly towed. The cold metropolis takes pity on the trio and offers a helping hand – they get as far as the Winter Palace restaurant, which draws in travelers in need. This film about hardships in a metropolitan jungle, friendships and open hearts had its world premiere at Berlinale.
