Synopsis:
This road movie takes us across Europe, from the former Berlin Wall to the new border fence around Ceuta in Morocco. At least four frontiers but one single axis: a racially mixed, multicultural society, rich in its diversity despite being traditionally rejected. Patric Jean takes us from the north to the south with humour and compassion to show us men and women who have migrated from the four corners of the earth and make up this new society – contributing to it with energy and generosity. After his very dark film “La raison du plus fort”, and contrary to all stereotypes, the director presents an optimistic, celebratory, sometimes sardonic look at Europe and its immigration.
