When I close my eyes

I see a world

in which all people are equal.

Everyone can be

who they want, and decide

how they want to live.

A world in which you don't

have to fear punishment for mistakes.

People have the same opportunities

no matter where they're from,

no matter who their parents are.

There is no envy or jealousy,

no poverty and no wealth,

and no sectors.

No one has to fight.

Not for their lives,

not for possessions,

not for justice.

But when I open my eyes

I see the world for what it is.

Mendacious and cold.


The coaching team welcomes you to

the Rowald Education Performance Camp.

My name is Loreen.

Please hand in all electronic devices

before we leave for the camp.

These new bracelets

will record your bio-data.

We'll evaluate them every evening.

You will not use any kind of technology

during your stay. This may cause

some stress for some of you.

If so, do approach us,

we can medicate this problem.

Additionally, we'll implant a transmitter

under your skin for insurance reasons.

This way we'll be able

to locate you in the area at any time.

You know this is about your future.

Only the best of you

will manage to qualify for one of

the five Rowald universities on earth.

So do your best and help each other

to become the best.

But most importantly,

have fun!

Give it to me!

- Is there a problem?

Ever seen anything like it?

What did Security want from you?

It was just my phone.

I forgot to hand it in.



- Yeah.

Ronen? - Yes.

- Get ready. We're leaving soon.


- Here.

And Nadesh. You're in tent number four.

The equipment is down there.

Right. Bernardt, Suri,

Jan and Titus, tent number three.

Have you slept in a tent before? Apparently,

forest noises make the first night difficult.

But my sister says you get used to it.

It's great here.

Ever been in the mountains before?

Almost makes you forget

what it's all about, right? - Yes.

So what is it all about?


Right. I almost forgot.

Cut it out. It's important to you too,

or would you prefer a deadbeat state uni?

In tent four, pupil Zacharias.

Very good overall fitness. Always well

above average over the past two years,


with a downtrend in the last quarter.

He keeps a diary. He's unstable.

Reference group?

Excuse me. His father took his own life.

He's struggling with that.

My sister visited the camp two years ago.

She said they observe us very closely.

They only pick the students

that fit their system. If they want you,

our school's assessment is irrelevant.

So if you were substandard,

you can easily make up for it here.

Need any help?

- I'm fine.

Next in tent four is Ronen.

Solid average. Physically not very fit.

Strikingly high sickness-absence rate.

Clearly someone for the reference group.

Team spirit is what they're looking for.

Individual performances count too, but

the scouts want to see how we work within

a team. - Nadesh, don't worry. We'll manage.

It's great to have you on the team.

Great social skills, physically fit

and significant leadership potential.

I think our focus should be on her.

Any objections?

Are you alright?

Yes. I didn't mean to wake you.

A notebook!

Do you still get those nowadays?

- It's an old one.

What do you write in it?

Just stuff for myself.

Be careful with the mosquitoes.

I've got some bug repellant,

if you need it.



- Yes?

You're with Bernardt.

- Bernardt? We're a team.


You're with Zacharias.


- Zach, Zach!

We're doing the orienteering together.

You were in the athletics team, right?
