Emigration is about to tear families apart, but the feeling of belonging determines an awkward form of expressing their unity. A moving short, premiered at this year’s Berlinale.


Striving for a better life, many people from Kosovo emigrate. Meanwhile, their parents still hope that the family stays unified. More than just a gesture and as powerful as a statement can be, brothers and sons who work and live abroad build identical houses to express the equality and unity in the family. An empathetic portrait of the families that, by economic necessity, need to live much of their lives separated and away from their own cultures.
