Summary, etc.:
Set in the dreary, unforgiving mid-19th century German village of Schabbach,℗HOME FROM HOME℗captures the plight of hundreds of thousands of Europeans who emigrated to faraway South America to escape the famine, poverty and despotism that ruled at home, encompassing a time of tribulation and great intellectual revolution.℗Not content to allow himself to be suffocated in such as dismal environment, Jakob (Jan Dieter Schneider) rebels against his tormentors by immersing himself in forbidden literature and an ill-fated attempt to stand in solidarity with like-minded revolutionaries before his dreams to escape the Prussian homeland are shattered. Through his enduring sense of optimistic wonder Jakob discovers a sense of purpose within his new destiny. Featuring Werner Herzog in a special appearance as Alexander Von Humboldt.
