Film Presentation:
Migratia e vazuta de obicei prin prisma problemelor materiale imediate pe care le ridica.Doar în ultima perioada se vorbeste de o alta problema legata de acest fenomen: carei culturi apartin copiii emigrantilor din anii 1950-1970? Europei sau cele a parintilor? Filmul e un exemplu foarte pertinent de ceea ce înseamna "ciocnirea culturilor" în lumea contemporana.
