Documentary / Germany, Finland, Romania / 2019 / 1 hr 24 min
Selected for the Sundance Film Festival, this documentary recounts the journey of a family trying adapt to a hostile new environment, so different from the one they came from. A story that will make you question the place of Man on the Earth.
In the Bucharest Delta, an abandoned water reservoir in the middle of the wilderness, the Enache family has lived in perfect harmony with nature for twenty years. But when the area is converted to a national park, they are forced to give up their unconventional lifestyle and move to the city. As the family struggles to adjust to modern civilisation and maintain their ties and their identity, they begin to question their very existence.
