Synopsis

When Daniel’s unit is tasked with clearing out a house full of illegal immigrants, the young officer faces a difficult situation. He, himself, is a descendant of African newcomers and, to make matters worse, his mother and brother live in the house as well. Daniel thus has to decide whether to remain loyal to the establishment or to his own roots. A film which subtly comments on modern times and how we can forget that, when taken together, little human stories may create an oppressive social situation.

Anna Purkrábková
