JÚLIA IST / Julia Ist

JÚLIA IST / Julia Ist

Júlia, an architecture student from Barcelona, decides to take an Erasmus year in Berlin. This is how, without much consideration, Júlia leaves her parents' home for the rst time in her life. Full of expectancies and lack- ing life experience, Júlia nds herself lost in a cold and grey Berlin, undergoing a student exchange year far from the adventure that she initially imagined. Little by little she will build up her life in Berlin and get to know who she is in this new context. And while she gets to know the city from the inside and lets herself be carried away by its people, the end of this adventure is coming closer and closer.
