She laughs with Bol.com dolphins, overcomes roadblocks and runs in the wilderness. Glittering glaciers, dense rainforest and barren deserts astonish you. But the meaningful stories tell her the people she meets on the way. They provide insights into their lives, sometimes short and easy, sometimes intense and profound.
Powerful, Jennifer tells McCann about her trip through Bolivia and Peru. Without hiding, insistent and reflected.
Spontaneously Jennifer McCann travels alone to Bolivia - the study just ended, but without a clear idea of what she wants from life. On the way, intuition and coincidence lead her further to Peru, where she works as a history seeker for a television documentary. The women and men she meets on their journey report from their lives and bring the past of both countries to life. They are portrayals full of power, tragedy and devotion.
Jennifer tells of great sights that are fleeting, and of small moments that reverberate for a long time. And to find their own way, with the certainty of mastering the future.
