A foggy landscape with new buildings in Eisenhüttenstadt at the German-Polish border: "Eisen", Iron, that’s how they call the town here. Portraits of asylum seekers from all over the world are set among impressions of a dreary life in a strictly composed sequence of images. They tell of hopes for a better life: here, in Germany.
