They have travelled a long way, by plane, train, bus or boat. And now they find themselves attending an integration course led by teacher Christian Zingg in Basel where, over the course of two years, young people from all over the world learn the language and culture of the country which might end up becoming their new home.
In Christian Zingg’s class, all of the students hope to leave their past behind and live their dreams in Switzerland.
The teacher doesn’t delude himself or the students, and makes clear that it’s difficult to start a career in a foreign country. Nevertheless, Mr Zingg never tires of encouraging the students to believe in themselves and in a better future.
But as the two-year course nears its end, the question of whether there is even a place for them in this new country becomes even more pressing.
Extras: Cash bar, Bratwurst, selection of cold drinks, music, meeting kind people
