Um uns die Welt

Three portraits, in a mix of documentary and animation, of Eastern European migrant workers in Germany. A construction worker who lives on the streets of Frankfurt, a woman who shares a hotel room with her daughters, a retiree who drives a truck to support his family back home. Stories of labor exploitation, unemployment and homelessness, in the productive heart of Europe.
