Initially Dario moved from Ecuador to Germany to be with Stephanie. But from the very first day there was a third party in their relationship: government agencies. They issued him 10 visas during the following 15 years. A long trail of papers, stamps, permits and restrictions connected Dario to Germany whilst also keeping him at a distance.
Until one fine day the mayor of Hamburg invites Dario to become a German citizen. A profession of love? Dario responds with a tender-ironic road movie that traces his intertwined journey from the country of his fathers to the country of his children.
