Two young filmmaker are travelling together with two digital nomads Steven and Diana and their one year old daughter from Mexico to Costa Rica. Together they are documenting how you can choose for the life of your dreams, even when you don’t have a steady job, a fixed income or a big savings account. During this adventurous roadtrip of two months the filmmakers will learn everything about living a different lifestyle. A lifestyle in which concepts like money, time, work and possessions will gain a different meaning. Together they will visit a number of secluded communities, meet special fellow travelers and learn wise lessons from local people. This way will show what your live can look like if you take matters into your own hand. A life behind the horizon.
Imagine being an ambitious young and freshly graduated student and stepping into the typical 9-5 office job that almost immediately drains all your energy. Together with loads of other young people, the makers of this film are facing this fate. A fate that was taught to us but doesn’t have to be true perse. A We believe that in 2016 this does not have to be the path we have to walk. We want to investigate what possibilities lie off the beaten track. Without worrying about society’s expectations. How can we contribute to society and be productive, but in a different way? And what would this life look and feel like? Time to hit the road and find out!
We are shooting this documentary for the ever growing group of people that are becoming conscious of the fact that life can be a lot more sustainable, independent and filled with freedom and adventure. A life where work no longer plays the central role it does now and an impulsive, adventurous lifestyle is becoming the new normal. People who, just like us, envision a better world. With our search through central america and within ourselves we hope to inspire many others and to stimulate them to consciously and confidently choose for themselves and the life they want to live.
