A film by Agnieszka Holland. In Polish, Arabic, English and French with German subtitles.
A Syrian family leaves the violence of their country behind. Their goal is to get from Belarus to Poland and finally to the safe haven of Sweden. But while travelling through the Polish-Belarusian border region, they become a political plaything instrumentalised both by the Polish government and press for their own purposes. Polish master director Agnieszka Holland delivers a haunting and moving drama. Her complex political portrayal focuses on the interplay between officials, activists and civilians. An unsparing film that forces our society not to look away.
