Abandoned places are mysterious and fascinating because time seems to stand still there. The buildings have been left to their own devices, abandoned to decay and nature. Ghost towns, dilapidated hospitals or derelicted military bases fascinate scientists, photographers and adventurers all over the world who set out in search of the forgotten history of the place.
Starting point of the films are these special places. In each of the four episodes we discovered the place and its history with the help of the protagonists. They reveal traces, look back into the past and uncover the last secrets of the ancient walls. At the same time, we use the places as a bridge into the past, so that we can learn more about the zeitgeist and the background of its origin.
