L'escale France, Switzerland 2013 – 100min.

Short description



A regular at festivals, Iranian-Swiss director Kaveh Bakhtiari spent three months with his Iranian cousin in Athens, who fled his country to emigrate to Europe in search of a better life. His journey was a nightmare: almost drowning on his way to the island of Samos, he was arrested by the Greek police. But he wasn’t safe yet. He still had to find a place to live, something to eat, a way to stay clean and to make new contacts. Despite experiencing great disappointment, the young man still dreams, against a backdrop of huge freighters lining the majestic harbor of Piraeus, of continuing his journey towards more merciful horizons...
