Documentary, 55 min

Production: Samsa Film, MASKéNADA

 

With 300 boarders, the "Weilerbach" is Luxembourg's biggest asylum seekers' home. The film follows three families over a period of three years, in their quest for a permit to stay, and through the despairing monotony of waiting, in the hope, that one day, a miracle will happen.

 

The film evolved from a theatre play with the same subject (Exit Luxembourg). On the DVD of the film, you can find a recording of the play as well.
