Best Documentary Film 2014 - Nominated


by Kaveh Bakhtiari

In Athens, Amir, an Iranian immigrant, has a modest flat which has become a place of transit for migrants who like him have chosen to leave their country. But Greece is only a stop-over, all of them hoping to reach other Western countries. They find themselves stuck at Amir's, hoping for ID documents, contacts and the smuggler to whom they might entrust their destiny as clandestines.
