Nina Kusturica who herself had to leave Bosnia-Herzegovina during war as a teenager has made a great film about unaccompanied minor refugees who fled from their home countries to Europe. During the film we get to know these teenagers and learn about their different backgrounds as they come from different crisis regions all over the world. We see how they try to live a "normal" life despite all the uncertainty, and we learn a lot about European bureaucracy, which (at least as a European) feels really depressing. That is why this documentary is so important. It shows what apparently nobody wants to think about and what politicians refuse to admit: that refugees are human. They have a face, they have fears and they have hopes - and everyone of them has a story to tell. For none of them it was an easy decision to leave their home, their family and friends behind (if they were still alive). Despite this serious topic, this film is nice to watch and it will probably make you more aware of current media coverage. At the end of the film you will know the protagonists so well that you will even feel as if you were part of this bunch of multicultural teenagers. If you have the chance to watch it, I highly recommend you do so!
