Movie synopsis: During the current refugee crisis, the claustrophobic drama by Bénedicte Líenárd and Mary Jimenez cannot be thematically more poignant. A group of refugees to Brussels decide to go on a hunger-strike to acquire the documents which would enable them to stay in the country and get a job. The protest is a sincere expression of the hopelessness of the situation for the participants, and obtaining the documents makes all the difference between life and death. Yet while the strikers are quickly losing strength, suffering from the authorities' indifference, others shamelessly profit from their desperation. The concisely shot yet all the more biting drama inspired by real events premiered at IFF Thessaloniki.
