Theaterregisseur Martin inszeniert „Die Ermittlung“ von Peter Weiss, ein Stück über den Holocaust. Um dem großen Thema gerecht zu werden, fährt er mit einigen Ensemblemitgliedern nach Auschwitz. Nebenbei will er vor Ort die Gunst der Stunde nutzen und sich seiner Lieblingsdarstellerin nähern. Sabine aber hat andere Pläne. Alle Figuren sind getrieben von ihrer Sehnsucht nach Nähe, Macht und Erfolg. Als Gośka, eine polnische Jüdin hinzukommt, eskaliert die Situation… Eine bitterböse Tragikomödie, die fernab von politischer Korrektheit fragt, was wir jetzt und heute mit Auschwitz zu tun haben.

“Rom.A” is about a day out of the life of three groups. On the one hand we have the young Roma Hector, who lives in a camping car on a noisy street in the beautiful capital of Italy. Hector is already looking forward to the day, because today he finally gets the opportunity to take his chosen Francesca to his wife. As the tradition demands, he finally has the required dowry of 10,000, – for the wedding together. He just has to pick up the money from his boss…

Unfortunately, everything turns out different than planned, and Hector has to decide whether to remain loyal to his ideal and not to become criminal, like his circle of friends, or he stretches his hand after the fast criminal money. At the same time Francesca, his chosen one, has to face a difficult decision. Her parents don’t want to wait any longer for the young man’s money.

Either Francesca decides going against the tradition and leaves the guarded environment of the parents, or she stays at home and lets the parents decide what to do. At the same time, four policemen patrol the streets of Rome. They tell how they see Rome and what they think of the city’s crime. The roads of the policemen cross with the young Roma.
