The subject is based on the idea that asylum applicants and refugees live among us and so are part of our social reality. The main characters are three men and two women who are actually going through this experience in real life. They are representatives of an African, a Middle East, an Eastern European and a Latin American country. The film plays on the particularities of the characters' mother tongues in order to render the identity of asylum applicants and refugees living in Europe more real. This narrative choice may disorientate viewers at first but then begins to involve them in this multilingual conversation.
