Structured in three parts, the film records cultural encounters with the camera: a journey from Berlin through Eastern Europe, and two urban expeditions, one to Odessa and one to Istanbul. With an impressive eye for detail and respect for the individuals she meets, Ulrike Ottinger presents a portrait of the people on the edge of Europe.

“This is not a journey to a far-off land; it takes place along the old transit roads and trade routes through Southeast Europe. The images collected at the side of the road distil something essential from a number of small but significant observations: the simultaneity of completely heterogeneous living conditions.” (Ulrike Ottinger)
