Student migration has become a trend, a positive consequence of globalization. In this experimental documentary, young Armenian professionals filmed their routine while they study abroad, documenting the struggles and the new opportunities they experience in their host countries. The students speak about their lives in a foreign land and their expectations for the future, when they return to Armenia.
