    • Synopsis
    • Afghanistan, Cameroon, Serbia, Venezuela – they have a long journey behind them, the new pupils of Mr. Zingg in the integration class Basel. Young, and with hopes of a better future, they travel to Switzerland and now place great hopes in their new teacher: he is the one who should show them the way into a new country. Sheltered and protected from society, the pupils learn the language and culture of Switzerland in just two years. Mr. Zingg, the teacher, has only one goal in sight: to help the young people who have been traumatised by so many hard strokes of fate to find a job in the new society. But as the end of their schooling approaches, these young migrants have to ask themselves a harrowing question: is there a place at all for me in this country?
