Another world awaits beyond the sea. For 19-year-old Heidi that world is Argentina.

The world is full of longing for places that are not located on any map. 19-year-old Heidi from the Dolomites sets out to follow such a longing and ends up in Necochea, Argentina. There she imagines she will find what doesn't exist in her previous life, a warm, loving environment. Her escape 'from what one is depressed of" turns into a confrontation with foreign customs and needs, and ultimately herself. Heidi meets the challenge in her own way. A measured, engaging portrait of a young girl alienated from her mother and seeking liberation "beyond the sea".
