The film based on the selection of stories about the experience of journeys, shared by its participants (minor age unaccompanied refugees) during the 3 months of fieldwork in 2013 in Cologne, Germany. What they have gone through and been faced with on the way to, or after arrival in the host countries.

The intention of the project was to reach out to the broader local audience. Therefore by applying experimental narrative forms, the film tends to express and project these experiences sensorially.
