BerlinSong is a story about six musicians from Berlin's vibrant new folk underground music scene. They came to Berlin from the US, Norway, the Netherlands and Australia and somehow made the city their home. Filmmaker Uli M Schueppel made the artists show him what their very own place in Berlin is and asked each of them to write a song about the city. These reflections and projections on Berlin (or specifically Kreuzberg) merge with the writing process of the songs, recording in the studio and the preparation for a concert with all artists in the club "West Germany". BerlinSong is a poetic portrait of these musicians and at the same time, an atmospheric journey into the myth that is Berlin.
