Two filmmakers visit people who replied to their wanted online ads.

Two filmmakers, one German and one American, visit each other’s country. Their route is determined by interested folks in the U.S. and in Germany who replied to their “Americans wanted” and “Germans wanted” online ads. They interviewed people they came across and reported and translated their experiences into short films. The two journeys took place simultaneously, between October and November of 2007. The routes were not planned beforehand; almost all of their encounters were by chance. In the U.S. Florian Thalhofer traveled by motorcycle, in Germany Marc Simon went by car. What emerged is a portrait of two countries seen from the perspective of the outsider.
