Albert loves life, and he won’t let anything get in his way, least of all his wheelchair. He’s only 19, but he’s already traveled to dozens of countries. He’s made a sport of leaving with only 20€ in his pocket and putting his faith in the innate goodness of people he meets along the way. This time, his destination is as far away as possible from his home in Barcelona: a lighthouse in New Zealand. For the first time his girlfriend Anna will be joining him. It’s impossible to hitchhike with a camera team in your wake, so they decide to film their adventures themselves.
Post-screening conversation about the film and its implications.
