Determined to bring the anti-austerity movement straight to Angela Merkel‘s doorstep, the group calls for a vote that will put an end to a politics that privileges financial interests while neglecting the people. Their actions, their commitment for a change in national and communitarian policies are divided between the desire to go back and their determination to start afresh.

On December 20th 2015, after a three-months-long campaign, the fearful day arrives. Raquel and Juan are commenting on the results of the elections at a local radio in Berlin. Later, in a taxi driving through the city lights, they think of their Spain. Their satisfaction, their disappointment and their desire to start over again travel with them through the night…

Filmed in real time, this film is an honest and bold portrait about the wishes, fears and actions of a group of new Berliners facing their future in the aftermath of the economic crisis in Southern Europe and sharing the same destiny as many other communities of young Europeans forced out of their home countries.
