von: Andy Glynne

Rachel's family is Christian and is both threatened and excluded in their Muslim country. The family flees to Europe. However, after a short, unburdened time they are in custody pending deportation. Back where they came from, the family is even more threatened than before. Once more, they seek refuge in Europe. Rachel lives in constant fear of deportation. But then she receives the message she has been waiting for: the family has been granted an unlimited residence permit.
