Santiago Roman, a young soldier, is back in Lima after years spent combating Ecuador as well as terrorism and drug trafficking in his own country. He represents a sacrificed generation, which has paid the price of the government’s irresponsibility. Haunted by his war memories, Santiago has to confront a new type of combat: to adapt to civilian life in both hostile and indifferent Lima.

Etwas Paradies

When about 330 Tyroleans and 120 Rhinelanders migrated to the Peruvian jungle in the mid 19th century, they carried little luggage, but a lot of hope with them. 160 years later, mobility and migration are a constant topic not only of the past but also of the present. Many native Peruvian people have come to the once remote area, and the Tyrolean dialect has become rare. In this documentary the people of Pozuzo get to speak about their perceptions of home, identity and origins.
