    • Russian-born, 39-year-old Tania Zimina and her 13-year-old son Ivan arrived in Belgium eight years ago. Though assimilated, they have no ID cards and live illegally. Then one day, they are stopped by immigration police. Tania is caught. Ivan only just gets away. Tania is sent to a closed center for illegal aliens. She must cope with the hell of the centre and discovers there are zones of "non rights". Then one day, "they" want to expel her, far from her son.
