Is travelling a form of vagrancy or is it more of an inner journey that completes you when you finally reach the end of the road? This is one of the questions pondered on this documentary about the Wanderlust, the irresistible desire to wander the world, which for someone is a syndrome to be found in the DRD4 gene, for others the gift of those born to explore.
That’s how the directors decide to follow Panu, a Finnish traveler, in a road trip from Finland to Australia to witness a full sun eclipse. A week from the end, unexpectedly, something goes wrong.
The Fifth Sun is a glimpse into a lifestyle where your whole life fits into a backpack, trying to make you consider your own ideas about freedom.
