Crowdfunding since 2010

A Roadmovie - with road, love, friendship, adventure and world saving on a small scale.

Matthias, who was born in East Berlin, is a slick worker in an advertisement agency. But one day his routine gets disrupted by the order to scatter the ashes of his mum, a convinced socialist, at a very special place. He has to travel to a deserted island off the shore of Cuba, that Fidel Castro once donated the GDR: Cayo Ernesto Thälmann - Ernesto’s Island. Matthias takes a trip, that becomes more and more a search for a true home.
