Von Hier Aus

Beyond Elsewhere

Laden with our parents’ ideals of the ’68 generation, we go in search of how we want to lead our lives. We meet Ute, Wim, and the Wieserhoislers, who have all taken a big step towards living by their own beliefs and desires. We learn what their daily lives outside the norm are like, how utopias become actual places, and why there is no dropping out of society.
