Location Berlin, city of rock singers, dancers, acrobats, blacks, gays, transsexuals and Jews. A group of Americans is living in the midst of this turbulent scene. There’s Angie Stardust, a black, wild and crazy dancer from Harlem, who used to work in transvestite clubs, whipping up her audience into a frenzy. She used to be a man, incidentally. In Berlin she runs a fast-food joint., „Hamburger Königin“ by name, where tasty hamburgers are „created“ by a colourful mixture of exotic figures who also live in Angie’s pension. Then there’s Gary, a black exotic dancer who’s fallen under the spell of the supernatural. He holds group therapy sessions in his room with rather startling results. Transvestite Tara O’Hara, formerly a medical orderly, is proud of his masculine and feminine appeal. He often has late-night visitors – much to the chagrin of Loretta with whom he shares a room in the pension. She’s unceremonsiously kicked out of her bed at such moments. Poor Loretta dreams of becoming an actress but nobody takes her seriously. She’s always crying. Joaquin La Habana comes from Cuba. He dreams of becoming the world’s greates show star. No doubt Angie can teach him a thing or two. And the of course there’s Judith and Tron with their erotic trapeze show. Quite something – until Judith has a training accident and is confined to a wheel-chair. Last but no means least is the Hamburger Konigin’s big star, Lila from the deep south. She’s come to Berlin to look for handsome men and True Love. An East German agent „discovers“ her in seedy Kreuzberg and introduces her to the“big time“ in the DDR. So there they are, the unconventional figures, the heroes of Berlin, City of Lost Souls. But look about you, wherever you are – you’ll propably find other lost Souls much nearer to home.
