Experiencing Interruptions?

One Way Ticket

With a reliable internet connection and modern technology, people around the world are hitting the road to explore other cultures and ways of life. They realize they don’t need to pay high rents to be near their place of work, but also that there is no reason to spend the rest of their lives in the place they were born. They work and live from anywhere they want, without limiting themselves to one location. As this new generation rises, companies and governments have also started to adopt new strategies.

Future of work or neo-colonialism? Through interviews with advocates, academics and authorities, this film examines issues surrounding the supposed "dream life".
