Jasmina, Toplica and Claudia live in an informal settlement on the outskirts of Belgrade. Like other Roma families in the neighbouring shacks, they live in extreme poverty as a result of discrimination and exclusion. Through experience of migration and deportation to and from Germany, Jasmina lives separated from her parents and brothers.This film looks into the struggles of making a living on the margins of society. It also explores how the protagonists remember life in Western Europe and hope to go back there in the near future. Jasmina’s and Tony’s everyday life is permeated by thoughts of escaping, migrating and providing Jasmina’s daughter with a better prospect of life.
