Land in Sight (Land in Sicht)

Abdul, Brian und Farid are stranded in a secluded home for asylum seekers in the small town Belzig in the German region of Brandenburg. Starting from there, they are looking for a way into German society. Their imaginations clash with the local mentality at village fests, in government agencies and night clubs. Instead of evoking consternation, Land in Sight focuses on the unintended humour of those encounters.
