Gangerl (over 80), an aging dropout, embarks with a young film crew on a gruelling odyssey across the Indo-Pacific to the indigenous people of West Papua to discover the values lost in our consumerist society; A journey to find understanding for the mortality within his generation and himself.
“After more than 30 years on the high seas, far away from the consumer world, I now look at our planet in a completely different way. I am fascinated by people who have never been in contact with money. They celebrate a life together in a community of alternative values. What do they do differently? That’s where I learnt to bei human.“
