Wanderlust accompanies two women, from different origins, on their journey by land and water from Egypt to Germany. As they set out to investigate the experience of the female traveler they focus on their own perspective of crossing places and spaces, emphasizing how the experience of traveling with a woman’s body is different from traveling with a man’s body.
Wanderlust is a filmic journey from Africa to Europe that invites you to take a leap and to discover, as few films do, the beginning of a friendship between two women.
