Realism at its best. Vulnerable illegal immigrants strive for a better living in a foreign land where they want to call home permanently.

An illegal Russian living in Belgium is captured by immigration and threatened with deportation to Poland, a country that hates Russians. This is a film that all persons that support self-deportation and other methods of deportation would rather you not view. I'm not sure how immigration workers can stomach their jobs.

No comments! Let me be the first to tell you about this dark but brilliant film. How brave of a Belgian crew to cast and produce such a provocative study. Brilliant on all fronts. It's a must see.
