Two refugees travel from the Pakistan/Afghan border through a multitude of countries in an effort to get asylum in Britain. All manner of means are employed to get to Britain - all of them hazardous and arduous.

This film engages the viewer through its realism - it is almost a documentary in look and feel. It was made on a handheld digital camera using available light, with an unprofessional cast and dialogue that was mostly improvised. It is a human story of our time and one that demands to be seen if only to counter the media hysteria normally associated with refugees.

Winner Berlin International Film Festival Golden Bear 2002.
