In this film, on a journey from the mouth of the Danube in Romania to its source in the Black Forest, three French philosophers, Bernard Stiegler, Jean-Luc Nancy, Philippe Lacoue-Labarthe, and the German filmmaker Hans-Jürgen Syberberg, ponder Heidegger's philosophical ideas about technology, time, mortality, memory and history, and consider how they relate to today's Europe.
