A group of eco-conscious young Berliners following an alternative lifestyle head east to visit the Biebrza National Park, as part of their holiday trip. They make a longer stay in a beautiful small village in the region of Podlasie, where they rent an old wooden house from Stanisław, a local farmer. They walk, photograph landscape and wildlife, meditate, practice AcroYoga, learn about wild mushrooms, pray to the full moon, show compassion for farm animals, bathe naked at the well, and eat vegetables found in a dustbin near a local grocery shop. To local villagers, they seem more exotic than any other celebrities they have seen on TV. Is this possible that neo-hippies and local communities to find a common language, despite communication barriers and such a vast cultural gap. Documentary.
