about the film
Idyllic villages hide traces of sorrow and suffering inflicted to humans by each other. One needs to be ready to witness the darkness guarded by the dreams and hopes and to not get lost in the mist. The short film is based on the stories of people who cross the borders in search of safety and peace and who find humiliation and torture instead. Despite everything they are not giving up.
