    • Synopsis
    • The film is shaped by scenes from the parallel lives of the adults and the children in the camp. The children do not go to school and since they do not have any contact with the surrounding societly they live in their own world where they take care of each other.
      The film catches moments from their bubble. It will become clear: Europe today includes Yasir, Nadia, Abunori and their children, they will be part of shaping Europe tomorrow. The future will bit by bit come up throughout the scenes with our big and small protagonists in the camps.
