About the Film

A gaming company is creating a video game for children about the European Union. The player’s character is a national bird in need of breeding and nesting across borders. The catch is that it can only fly as allowed by their EU visa rights. The film follows two game designers as they transform the European Union into pixel graphics in an effort to make Schengen catchy. But the question here remains: can they actually accomplish that?
