With taut, often symmetrical images of natural and industrial landscapes, artist Vladimir Todorovic tells three stories that are set in Singapore, Serbia and Spain. In all these countries, immigrants try to bond to landscapes and places with which they share no past, but of which they do form a part.
In Singapore, a couple from China and Japan suffer from the monotony and loneliness of their expat life. They travel to a neighbouring island, where they feel just like the coral, trapped in an industrial landscape.
A man returns after a ten-year stay in the USA to Serbia. The Serbian steppes through which he cycles evoke memories of landscapes from his past. He feels alienated from his own country.
In Catalonia, Spain, a young couple from Colombia and Chile search for a better life. He has not yet found any work, but they face their uncertain future with self-confidence.
