Storyline

The cross-frontier migrant's life 'within the system' - an endless, featureless, futureless round of queues - becomes even bleaker in December. Bipul doesn't want to admit it, but the arrival of Lidia, a Russian girl makes a difference. Hope? Surely not! A future? Get real! December is also the ninth month of Martina's pregnancy. But, just when the situation seems hopeless, help is at hand. A Christmas story. Written by Cassette for timescapes

This is a dark, lighthearted film
9 September 2018 | by whatithinkisSee all my reviews

Hopeful despair beautifully filmed, exquisitely timed, with flawless acting and amazing writing. I've never seen anything like it. Totally watchable but not light entertainment.
