How far would you go to protect your daughter? Would you become a refugee?

Fleeing to a Swedish refugee camp to escape prostitution, young Polish mother Marta and her daughter Ania find their refuge to be just as dangerous. How will they escape, now they are trapped by law? Acted with a searing conviction by lead Magdelana Poplawsa, this raw yet humane drama illuminates just how perilous refugee status - and motherhood - can be.
