Or, this was the goal, when they applied to participate in a so-called media experiment that required participants to do what is mentioned above within a year. Tatiana, Hans, Auri and L. are four of the fifteen selected among 9000 applicants. But what was to be an adventurous year of founding an idyllic society soon turned into a nightmare.
