At the non-places of this world lie the struggles of nobodies. To improve, overcome and survive… Their struggles suffocates them, they forget to live. They dislocate them, bring them together and pull them apart. Father and son share simple dreams and a lifetime on the road. Along an unromantic silk route they try to make some come true. Searching for a more livable future they break apart. Yet they accept their fate. Even when surrounded by corruption, how does one hold one’s integrity?

 

Pieter-Jan Van Damme

Having a background in international law, Pieter-Jan Van Damme met with documentary filmmaking when working for the One World Human Rights Film Festival in Prague. The newly discovered medium made its impact on him and eventually he started making his own films. He is interested in issues such as globalization, labour and migration.
