The documentary tells the story of four Chinese social climbers in Hamburg, which are trained for a global mission. There is no other European city that is as highly regarded by these well-trained
Chinese. But while other waves of emigration around the turn of the century formed whole districts, the Chinese influence on the European society apparently passed by unnoticeably. The film explores the main question of the daily challenges of our protagonists.
What does it mean for them to live and work 8000 kilometers away from the own, mostly young families. Are they separated only for a period of time or for eternity?
