EXPECTING /  28 min

Jawed escaped from Afghanistan and Dashurije left Kosovo in search for a better life. They met each other in the refugee-center in Brussels and since then, the only thing they have in this world is each other – and their yet to be born baby. Through hunger strikes and demonstrations, they manage to obtain a temporary permit to stay in Belgium. The happiness for this positive change is burdened by a chain of events that puts their everyday life under severe pressure. And when new problems arise with their permit to stay, the destiny of their unborn child is at stake.
