"If you want to change your life with all your heart, you can do it!" Alcindo has overcome the poverty of his family in the volcanic crater village – Laeticia from France wants to live there with him, on the Cape Verdean island of Fogo. Ex-bodybuilder Vincent was able to escape his traumas in Denmark and find peace with his family at the foot of the volcano. Ralph left Germany behind and with his love Ella created a plant paradise on the inhospitable volcano island. They all stood on the abyss, they all courageously took their lives into their own hands. In impressive pictures and with simple clarity the film shows at the same time the vulnerability and the power of nature and people. Each picture and each conversation sensitively captures these contrasts. And when the lava dances on the volcano, we understand the magic and violence of life. Morgane Remter
