Made in Poland, the unusual emigrants

A versatile hand-held camera films from unusual points of view a group of Polish skaters looking for better life outside their home country, a visual treatment that just expresses the same improvisation with which these skaters try to adapt in a society very different from that of their country of origin.

But living in a "promised land" implies obstacles, such as difficulties to have a place to sleep, problems with local authorities and sacrifices to pave the way for a better future. In the foreground, we always see their faces, their nice skating tricks or hard falls; in the background, we always see a distant and foreign city that still does not belong to them.
