Lungo l’immensa spiaggia di Calais, da anni trasformata in un enorme campo profughi, si coltiva la speranza un giorno di poter arrivare in Inghilterra. Nel frattempo i profughi si organizzano come possono, portando avanti attività lecite e talvolta illecite. A volte si aggiungono ai problemi generali drammi privati, come quello di Nadim, un ragazzo afgano alla ricerca della propria personale libertà….
Calais, refugee camp. Nadim, an afghan boy, is living in the camp with his family and
helping his father at the shop held in the center of the jungle. But Nadim has a secret :
he is a bacha posh (girl raised as a boy in Afghan culture). Nadim dreams to flee and
fight for her freedom.
