    • Synopsis
    • Like many other seniors in Germany, Petra receives early retirement sum, which is terribly low. Rent and utilities costs leave her with approximately 100 euros a months for food and other expenses. Barely enough to get by in a city as expensive as Hamburg. Petra refuses to accept such circumstances. She belongs to a new generation of seniors, who do not feel that life should be over just because you are growing old. Early retirement will become a new chapter in her life. She decides to leave everything behind and move far away, to Eastern Europe.
