Home away from home
Around the world, millions of people are emigrating to other countries to work - often giving up their identity, their roots, their freedom for a meager wage. This global labor migration is one of the biggest and most invisible problems of our time. We explore this topic using the example of Vietnamese emigrants in Taiwan and Germany. The times and experiences collide - young, hopeful people of today, as well as illegal immigrants or former GDR contract workers, have their say.
It is based on interviews and discussions with different people in both countries. Their very different stories tell about the global dimension of migration and intercultural problems but at the same time report on the complex history of a divided German state as well as Taiwan struggling for its own identity as an industrialized country.
