There is a hole in the ground of the former junkyard, next to Wagenhalle in Stuttgart. The reason for this excavation remains unclear. Is it a archaeological site, a tunnel construction site, are there treasure hunters at work? Suddenly, Jimmy Page appears, starting to play the hypnotic riff from “Kashmir” and things are starting to move. A director tries to capture the “ultimate reality” on video, an archeologist appears intending to recover rare cultural treasures, the drug mafia becomes nervous and then a mineral water lode gets pierced.
