Hans Arold

Hans Arold is well known around Nürnberg for his strawberry plantations and tree nurseries. At 80 years, he is a wise old man with a splendid charisma.

Medium-to-large scale specialized agriculture was flourishing in this area before the 1986 Chernobyl disaster, after which many farmers were forced to abandon their business due to increased radioactivity or simply the fear of it, where no increased radioactivity was detected. His business survived those days in the form of a down-sized company at the city's periphery, but new threats emerge in the form of rising property prices and profit-driven land sales and construction - right next to his idyllic and pristine plantations.

A silent battle between honest labor in a vivid pristine environment and profit oriented property trade.
