    • Synopsis
    • Tales of departures and partings intersect at Steubenhöft quay – the forgotten port of European emigration.
      The quay is almost not of this earth, a final terminus and a starting point for the transit voyages to the United States and Canada. The film-maker traverses this place of countless farewells in images full of longing.
      Situated on the German North Sea coast, it is the only still-operating, former emigration harbour in the world. Tales told by the people there, travellers after the turn of the century, and emigrants during the war awaken the place to new life.
