In the middle of June 2013, 300 African refugees were stranded in Hamburg. Originally from Libya, they suffered an at times very dangerous odyssey via Lampedusa to get to Hamburg. The Hamburg Senate would like to be rid of the men as soon as possible, but the two pastors of a little church in St. Pauli give 80 of the men sanctuary and the whole neighbourhood rallies round. Inhabitants of the militant autonomous Hafenstraße take on important roles in organizing aid, doormen from the sex bars on the Reeperbahn protect the refugees from attacks from right-wing thugs. And the local football club FC St. Pauli helps out with clothing. A film about good hosts and their refugee guests.
