Will Marie from a small town in the Czech Republic succeed by fulfilling her lifetime dream to conquer New York as a still photographer?
We follow a five-year phase in the personal and professional lives of Marie and Thomas, partners in work and life, their passion and obsession for art, their fearlessness to make their vision a reality, and the boundless effort that requires. The film thus becomes a testimony to the moments that shape the young artists' careers, with all the uncertainties and obstacles they must overcome on the way to make their dreams come true. The film is also about a young artist's desire to be accepted in a new place, but also to be recognized in the place she left. Marie no longer feels at home in her native Mikulov, nor does she feel like she belongs to America. The phenomenon of pulling up one’s roots, migrating elsewhere, and finding a new home in a foreign land is a universal theme.
