Description of the project:

To which extent the outcome of our life depends on our own willpower, tenacity and how much is instead determined by the fact that we are born in a specific country?
I was born and raised in the country that is outside of the European Union, and I had no idea how difficult it can be to stay and work inside of the European Union and what kind of problems you can have on the border and with a police.
Being unable to stay in the European Union’s country, I came back to my country and at that moment I felt like a plant.
Planted where I didn't choose and growing where I didn't want to grow, without the possibility to place my roots anywhere.
I was wondering how much any one of us has anything to do with self-determination? And if anyone of us has a possibility to spread his areal of existence with the help of the wind same as plants can, then once when you cut a plant and put it in a herbarium its the same as to chain a human.
