Five Lives Missed

"A life beside" shows bizarre and adventurous life worlds. What drives people to flee, how do they set up their new lives and how big is the difference between them and us "normal citizens"? What is the fascination of the different subcultures? Because apparently they offer something that the "real" world cannot offer people.

A festival in the middle of nowhere, surgeons in musketeer outfits, a spiritual community with underground places of worship, silicone implants and meat hooks, a principality the size of a handball field: these are all lives apart. The Best of episode takes a look back at five very different lifestyles lived parallel to or replacing everyday life. Once again we show highlights like the suspension event of the Bodymoder from Hattingen or the princely family of Sealand, we see the Burning Man in the Nevada desert go up in flames once more, meet Saxon miners and Damanhurians. "Five Lives Beside" shows in concentrated form the fascination of these so different parallel worlds of life.
