DOCUMENTARY No fear of ageing: The members of the Hamburg Heaven Can Wait choir are all over 70. For them, the choir is a second home – and a refuge for the soul. For the singers of Heaven Can Wait, it requires courage to get up on stage and reveal their innermost beings. This post-war generation never really learned to talk about their feelings. Together with their director, the singers try and beguile their audiences with contemporary songs like »Emanuela« by Fettes Brot – and together experience the indescribable feeling of freedom that only singing can offer.
