Passions can determine our lives. They can bring us joy, excitement and power. They can become our life's goal, or at least provide comfort in difficult times. Music and acting are the passions that connect the protagonists of this film in their pursuit of happiness together. "Balkan Dreams - Life in the Rhythm of 16/9” is a long-term documentation, where the surprising faces of otherwise anonymous figures in Berlin are brought to light. We accompany our protagonists for 5 years through their often unsettled lives. The pace is melodic and sometimes sad, unleashing the beguiling sounds of the Balkans. We join them as their respective adventures unfold; with stories of their dreams, traditions, war and love. And thanks to them, we get a deep insight into the "Yugo-society" in Germany; 15 years after the end of the last Balkan war.
