„Life of students abroad”
Moving to another country is always difficult. People face a lot of difficulties. Ranging from feelings of loneliness ending with problems of housing. This is very difficult, including for students who move to a completely unfamiliar country. The first month is always the hardest, as students learn to re-use public transport, explore the area and look for an apartment. This is what our film is about. And specifically about a student from Kyrgyzstan, Adil, who went through all this. He went through all the difficulties that he told about in our film. And now he has his own company, which helps students not to go through this difficult path alone.
