Small town, big city

Scripted reality serie - NPO1 - 40 min

Small Town, Big City is a prime time social experiment where people from the city exchange lives with people from the countryside.

The rise of Trump and the vote for Brexit have made very clear that one of today’s biggest dividing lines in society is caused by the place where people live. Lots of countries have seen this tension between the countryside and the city. What happens when people exchange their habitat for two weeks?

In every episode, two families trade lives for two weeks. Can a city slicker survive in the countryside? Can a family of farmers thrive in an urban jungle? Will the children make friends in their new school?

Small Town, Big City is a show searching for the true soul of the nation, trying to bridge the gap in our polarized society.
