"Wild 13" is the name given by the residents of Hamburg-Wilhelmsburg to the most important bus route of their area. Wilhelmsburg is Hamburg's multicultural island in the Elbe, boasting more than 100 different nationalities, but also a socially deprived area with a bad reputation. For some time, the city has been trying to upgrade Wilhelmsburg. New lifestyles are arriving and putting the old, traditional ones under pressure. The buses of Route 13 reflect these developments -- as does the film, portraying drivers and passengers, getting off at their stop and accompanying them into their private lives. A wild journey through an island full of parallel universes.
