Synopsis: Irmela Mensah-Schramm, 65 years old, an heroine with no muscles nor super powers, armed with a paint spray, and a scraper, daily hunting throughout Germany looking for racist or homophobic graffiti or stickers.
Indifference is her worst enemy, and to those, who minimize, she answers: "People who draw a one meter swastika on a wall have to realize what they are doing."
