Like thousands of others running away from the war, Rahell has embarked on a difficult journey from the Middle East to Europe, with no passport or visas, trying to reach some relatives who have been living in Sweden for years. When he arrives to Italy he discovers that the Dublin Regulation prevents him from achieving his objective, as he is required to reside in the EU country of entrance. The film is produced by the association “A Buon Diritto”, under the patronage of Amnesty International Italy.
