In Groß-Umstadt, a small town in the Oberwald region of central Germany, a community of Portuguese workers arrived in the 1960s. Legend has it that a young Portuguese man was travelling through the area in 1962 when his motorbike broke down… and he never left, becoming the first Portuguese person to settle there. This documentary looks at the immigrant story between Portugal and Germany.
