Wenders discusses how stories and histories relate to places. He illustrates differences and similarities between architecture and film. Wenders explains how filmmakers and architects are both in the storytelling business, and creates further relationships between these disciplines. Wenders relates his experience as a traveller and his attempts to explore and understand a place and the people who live there. He offers his earlier films as examples of these relationships, including Wings of Desire, and Buena Vista Social Club with Berlin and Havana, respectively.
