At the non-places of this world lie the struggles of nobodies.
To improve, overcome and survive.
Their struggles suffocates them, they forget to live.
They dislocate them, bring them together and pull them apart.
Father and son share simple dreams and a lifetime on the road.
Along an unromantic silk route they try to make some come true.
Searching for a more livable future they break apart.
As working class heroes they accept their fate.
Even when surrounded by corruption, how does one hold one’s integrity?
‘We’re Going The Same Way’ examines the added value of honesty in our actions.
