My grandfather was one of the very first labour migrants of the recruitment agreement between Germany and Greece. A short poetic documentary about longing, family and being a so-called guest worker.
The film is intended to offer visibility to people who built up Germany but never fully became part of society, even though they are already living here in the third generation.
