about the film
This short documentary paints the portrait of Ahmad Shamieh, a barber from Syria that arrived in Slovenia in January 2016. Despite many attempts, he still doesn’t have a legal status, even worse, he has been threatened to be deported to Croatia. While his situation is still being discussed in the Ministry, Ahmad can’t do anything else but wait.
