Europe is in the grip of an immigration crisis: people from North and Sub-Saharan Africa, the Middle East, and elsewhere are arriving in ever greater numbers as they flee war, oppression, and a lack of opportunity. Germany receives more asylum seekers than any other European country, but their welcome is less than warm. This timely and insightful film accompanies four migrants from varying backgrounds on their way through a temporary registration center in Eisenhüttenstadt—a surreal place on the outskirts of nowhere. Their daily existence of uneasy boredom in a transitional home provides rare insight into the black box of asylum law and into a particular moment in Europe. More universally, it reveals the bureaucratic mechanisms that stand in contrast to the hopes of people around the world trying to make a better life.
