About the Film
We all need a home. But why live there together?
What works for us today, fulfills us? What do we believe in? And what is still worth fighting for? This is the digital age, most of us are financially independent, traditional social structures do not seem to count much anymore. A sense of being lost in the globalized world is felt by many. ‘Feeling at home’ , does that still exist? One partner and one home – GLOBALLY YOURS?
To investigate, Marko sets out on a very personal exploration in search of the life goals of his generation. He is 35 and still without a place called ‚home‘ – and far from becoming a father. Why is that? After all, it seems he has found the right woman. What is he waiting for? Is he expecting some sort of magic sign, is he just looking for the right moment? But when might that moment arrive? And what will it look like? Is he still holding out for ’something better‘? Really?
Looking for answers, Marko explores the lives of friends in Vienna, Belgrade, Dubai, Berlin and Addis Ababa. GLOBALLY YOURS is an ironic yet analytical portrayal of a generation in pursuit of fulfilling relationships in changing times.
