Sleeping Songs (Schläft ein Lied in allen Dingen)
Drama - 2009 - Germany

Martin, a nu-jazz trumpet player with a unique style, is fighting against convention and mediocrity. He will not accept any compromise, neither in his music, nor in love. When he gets the feeling that Kristina, the love of his life, only loves him for his musical talents, he is deeply hurt. Disappointed, he bids farewell to both her and his previous life. On the edge of society, he meets an old woman, who bequeaths him her pain in the form of poems. Martin is immediately fascinated. Can they guide him back to himself, to Kristina, or to his music?
