Who among us hasn't dreamed of this: just leaving everything behind and running away to a desert island?
In this DOK1 Lisa Gadenstätter meets people who follow this impulse. They emigrate to a lonely Caribbean island, to vibrant New York City or deserted Lapland. She asks why they leave their sheltered lives in Austria behind and what they are looking for abroad.
But it also works the other way around. Every year, significantly more people immigrate to Austria than emigrate. A young family from South Africa tells us what expectations immigrants have of life here and what surprises await them.
