Željko and Viki sacrifice all they have to ensure a gentle end of life for discarded horses on their small plot of land. End of the Road examines mortality and the need for compassion, empathy and dignity to be extended to all living beings for the entirety of their lives’ journey.

An essay about Lebanon (mainly) and Germany (also), about coastlines and plants like the marsh samphire, the milk thistle, the angel trumpet or the crimson bottlebrush. About adaptation and transformation as well as resistance, about changes desired and dreaded, the city of Beirut and its unexpected revelations, modernism and time passing by, and, of course, the hopes and fears of its inhabitants, many of whom sense that their future might wait for them across the sea, even if they don’t want to leave. LANDEN follows its protagonist on her botanical journey from the german Wadden sea shoreline to the coast of Lebanon. As she collects plants, she witnesses the consequences of Lebanon´s economic collapse and the disturbing decay. The flora become her only constant navigation. Along fragile ecosystems she loses herself between modernist architecture in Tripoli or at the banks of the Beirut River to find some hope for a future after the fall.
