“an intimate glimpse into the human condition that one hopes to find in the best of documentaries.” POV Magazine

Thai/English subtitles.




In the small fishing community of Thy in northern Denmark, 926 Thai women are married to Danish men, a trend that started 25 years ago when a former sex worker from Pattaya married a Thy native and has since helped lonely local men and impoverished women from her village find someone to share life with. Acclaimed filmmaker Janus Metz and his anthropologist wife, Sine Plambech, follow four of these Thai-Danish couples over ten years and two continents in an epic and intimately observed family chronicle about the needs, longings and dreams that unite and separate us across global boundaries. Above all, it is a film about love.
