Erlend E. Mo, Denmark, 2003

82 min.DK/Documentary

Over a period of three years we follow three refugees - each with their own personal strength, charisma and perspective on life - living in what they see as their country of hope: Denmark. Three dramatic stories unveil as Denmark with a new right wing government changes its refugee policy. This documentary provides a powerful contrast to the images of refugees created by the mass media.
