For 15 years a house located directly at the austrian-hungarian border was the home of an artistic collective which challenged geographical and artistic boundaries. In 2015 they had to leave – excatly in the moment when ten-thousands of refugees decided to ignore the border and define their own destiny. The film investigates ways to approach utopia through symbolic as well as activist actions.
