On the streets of post-WWII Germany, disgraced ex-cop Hans Epp (Hans Hirschmüller) ekes out a marginal living as a fruit vendor, and takes out his drunken frustrations on his long-suffering wife (Irm Hermann). When his business meets with success, all he manages to reap is deeper depression.

Standard; Soundtrack: German Dolby Digital mono; Subtitles: English; audio commentary; featurettes. In German with English subtitles.
