August, the holiday month, when everyone is on the beach “in search of a new skin color,” turns into a trip through space and time for director Valérie Pelet. She travels a route from Morocco to Austria that her brother-in-law, who lost his residence permit in the Schengen area, once took. The result is a travelogue that makes the holiday pleasure turn icy cold.
