The life of buildings depends on human history. There are renovation plans for the former Kaufhof branch, which was closed in July 2012 and is under monument protection and will be preserved, with the distinctive canopy roof facing Kalker Hauptstrasse in Cologne. Since Kalk district was severely damaged in World War II, only small remnants of the former Wilhelminian style buildings have survived. The film follows the traces of the recent past of Galeria Kaufhof as well as the new and redesign. The sound plays an important role in realizing the previous face of the Kaufhof. A retrospective is called from the current sound from another location - Köln Arcaden.
