Illegal migrants and asylum seekers are housed in refugee centers in Serbia following dramatic flights from the war and destitution gripping areas in North Africa and the Middle East. These people must pass through a complex period of adaptation to life in Serbia, though in most cases their aim is to arrive in countries within the European Union. Written in collaboration with the protagonist, this incisive docudrama highlights the socio-political context in which these people show their individual worth, and in the process become protagonists with whom viewers can identify, whose struggles through adversity and whose fates they can understand.
