GO WEST accompanies the German line dance club OWLS ON RAIL in their everyday club life. Despite frequent training, sport is not necessarily the top priority for the “Owls”, but rather community and comfort. The film gives the audience an insight into the microcosm of the club and into the world of line dance. The fascination for the myth of America is always present.
