Director Steffen Krones finds a beer bottle from his hometown of Dresden, Germany, in the Arctic Ocean in Norway. He can even bring it back and collect the deposit fee. How is that possible – how can an empty bottle travel across half of Europe? Creating special buoys with GPS units, the director sends them on the Elbe River current, trying to see where they all end up. An investigation into one trip of one piece of trash is also a comment on pollution – it’s always collective, never personal.
