The Salzkammergut is internationally recognised as a tourism and recreation region, where countless workers keep things running in the background and thus maintain the successful Salzkammergut brand. Without them, many sectors of the economy would grind to a halt. Some of them arrived in the region many years ago, and their children and grandchildren were born here. Others have only recently arrived.
In this film, Ilija from Bosnia, Raghda from Syria, Greg from Namibia, Ibadete from Kosovo and Hashmat from Afghanistan talk about the sometimes dramatic circumstances that brought them to Austria, how they were welcomed, how their lives have changed and what made them stay here.
