"New Neighbours" is about people who had to leave their home and try to integrate into a new neighbourhood, new village, new city, new society. But it will also tell a story of locals, those who have to accept new neighbours.
Would locals accept their new neighbours? Or would arrival of newcomers produce tensions? What are the ethnical, religious and ethical dilemmas both sides face? Moving is stressful enough without having neighbours around, but they are inevitable – for both sides. The challenging process of integrating and accepting hopes and fears that occur during that time are in the focus of each documentary.
