While Indira is struggling to get by in Bosnia-Herzegovina, desperately wanting to escape, her sister Mehdina has left the country for France, where she is striving to find her place. Hasan, Mehdina’s bright ten-year-old son, has yet to be consumed by the worries of the world, and has his own dreams of travelling to outer space. Claudia Marschal has been granted intimate access to the lives of some remarkable characters in this striking, empathetic documentary that gives a valuable voice to the ignored and unheard while addressing pertinent issues about migration, identity, racism and nationhood with veracity and urgency.
