The narrative is based on the monologues of two individuals, who do not know each other. They have been recorded for a young sculptor, the male character, getting ready to leave his country, while the text of a female student was recorded just after leaving the home country. Both characters are not typical economic or political immigrants. They share a common drive for new experience in another country, another cultural context. The visual structure is aimed at creating visual suggestions of these two documental narratives, without filming the actual narrators. The sculptor is speaking while showing a portrait of the national hero, created by himself, while the monologue of female student is accompanied by photographs, snapshots of her first days in the strange city. The first reflections of travelling, moving house and experiences are compared with the point of departure, the city, which they know well; from the first moments of departure this point becomes an object of rememberance.
