Immigrant life can be a strange affair.
Andrey Mogilevsky, a young immigrant, finds himself swept up in the turmoil of an immigration system which pushes him from hotel room to backroom, to courtroom as he tries to find a place for himself in an unfamiliar Belgium. For Andrey, Belgium is filled with new sights, new cities, and new people many of whom are just like himself; lost and alone. An everyman hero adapting to this new world, Andrey speaks to the complexity of human nature when one is faced with the trials and tribulations of immigration.
As the world changes around him he must change with it. Who he was, who he is, and who he is trying to be are all undercut by a current of bureaucracy; the dismissal of resident Belgians and other immigrants alike? Stability, a job, a home, an identity; in this sea of cultures, it becomes hard to tell one from the other and harder still to know which one is worth diving in for.
