This fiction/documentary hybrid tackles the European immigration crisis head-on: three classrooms filled with real immigrants who have just arrived in Europe interact with actor Valentijn Dhaenens as he embodies three different perspectives on the crisis. The first, an isolationist stance that immigration will be the ruin of Europe; the second, an empathetic stance that sees world-healing possibility in immigration; and finally, our reality with Dhaenens adhering to actual immigration protocol, in this stunning blend of scripted dialogue and vérité reaction that serve to elucidate this ongoing crisis.
