In This World

Trasfoco

In a refugee camp in Peshawar, in northern Pakistan, a group of Afghan refugees fleeing war reflect on their present situation and their dreams of the future. Their wish to live a better life encourages them to embark on a journey full of dangers—a long voyage towards the UK.

And so Enayat and Jamal set out on a long journey that will force them to overcome many difficult situations, leaving behind a country devastated by war, invasions and violence. Ahead of them, a route through countries like Iran or Turkey full of threats and risks. That dream of a better life lies perhaps at the end of the road.
