Director: David Holland

Producer: Hoferichter & Jacobs

Genres: Factual


52' (ENG, GER)

The Treaty of Maastricht made the European Community into the "EU". It introduced European citizenship, laid the foundation for the single market, and prepared for the introduction of the euro. Today, Europe is crumbling. National-conservative parties are stirring up opposition to the idea of a unified Europe, even advocating its dissolution. The documentary tells the story from the point of view of a generation that has grown up with a unified Europe and goes on a journey across the continent to explore the legacy of Maastricht. The route leads from Portugal in the far west of Europe to the eastern border of the EU.
