The film depicts a migration crisis that erupted in late 2021 at Europe’s gateway: the forested border between Poland, which is a member of the European Union, and Belarus, a dictatorship, which is not. It is the story of those entangled in the crisis: border guards, activists, and migrants, including a Syrian family trying to reach a relative in Sweden, and an Afghan woman looking to settle in Poland.
