TURNUS

Turnus

The Shift depicts the fates of various people – a truck driver, a care-worker in Austria and a group of manual workers – who face the challenges of demanding week-long work tours. The film reflects on their dreams and desires, but also the sacrifices they have to make while they work in foreign cities and live in hostels or strangers’ households to provide for their dependents back home. What transpires in their lives? What do they dream about? A social probe into the phenomenon of week-long work tours, reavealing a paradox where the very endeavour to provide for their families actually erodes their fundamental connections – their relationships and bonds with loved ones – as they are kept away due to their work commitments.
