Berlin. It is a real fur made of squirrel fur, which the artificial silk girl Doris steals because she wants to appear rich and successful. Because what she is looking for is shine: “I want to become such a shine that is above. With a white car and bath water that smells of perfume and everything like Paris. And people respect me because I’m a shine. ”Neither a job as a typist nor the drama school have been able to fulfill this wish so far. After the theft, she flees to Berlin without papers, attracted by the glamor of the big city so that it shines on her.
