Matea, Shona, Bé, Henrik, and Věra live thousands of miles away from each other. Whereas twenty-year-old Shona has to survive on a few dollars a week in Indian Batanagar, Henrik lives in Western Europe with enough of everything, but without satisfying family relationships. The adolescent Matea only wants to live on her own and leaves the town that fascinates her father and a few elders. Bé has to decide if he would stay in his native Brazilian Bataypora, or follow his love to the Czech Republic. Věra from Zlín sacrificed her whole life to her work in a shoe factory, but the place has no future as the industry is fading away.
