Synopsis: The drama of the refugees has no beginning, but unfortunately no end either. This was the reason for documenting a very small part of the journey, from the Turkish shores to some kind of temporary settlement in Greece. The camera lens becomes the modern-day instrument for creating a historical record of what the journey means. This general overview cannot show the real drama experienced by each person individually, but it hopes to become a thorn on the side of political leaders.

Biography: Morteza Jafari was born in Tehran in 1975. He earned his MA degree in film directing. He has been living and working in Thessaloniki for the past 8 years. His works include short films, documentaries, and feature length films.
