German Film Awards' Best Film 2014. "In the mid 19th century, hundreds of thousands of Europeans emigrated to faraway South America. It was a desperate bid to escape the famine, poverty and despotism that ruled at home. Their motto was: “Any fate is better than death”. This is a domestic drama and love story set against the backdrop of this forgotten tragedy. It centres around two brothers who realise that only their dreams can save them." (View Trailer)
