Migration firstly starts in mind. It is not only a movement of refugees, but also a process of every-day-life. To leave a situation, to select unknown ways, means to cut yourself out of things, places and habits. It brings uncertainty and emptiness and of course new life and possibilities.The video questioned, how open a society is to unknown influences. And will it be able to deal with new challenges and able to understand migration not only as an external move, but become an active part of society, with their consequences in an open but also critical society.
