Shortly after the occupation of Czechoslovakia in 1968, the eighteen-years-old Irena Brežná unwillingly followed her parents to emigrate. Not only she had to face a new culture that was inconceivable to her, but also the remorse that she did not fight for her homeland. That is why she went to write about the dissident movement in Eastern Europe and the Russian invasion in Chechnya. Gradually we discover the emergence of the „patchwork identity“ of Irena Brežná, geographically located not only between Switzerland, Germany, France and Slovakia, but also in Africa and Russia. In her homeland, called Emigration, many languages are spoken and many interesting and diverse people appear. The film provides a unique archival footages, topped up with fresh tears and laughter.
