Marko and Benny are two typical Viennese bobos – but with immigrant backgrounds. When a television team interviews them in the fictional immigrant neighborhood “Rudolfsgrund”, they are mistakenly hired as protagonists for a new documentary series – and are suddenly confronted with real immigrant fates. Die Migrantigen is a turbulent “anti-integration comedy”, in which identities are questioned with a strong dose of political incorrectness.
