Imagine to find yourself in Finland, into the woods.
Imagine you have crossed Europe on you bare feet and the mediterranean sea on an inflatable boat.
Imagine now to have to start you life all over again, thousands of kilometres from home and that, this is very much depending from the decision that an officer will take, based on the story of your life.
Ihab and his uncle Yousuf in 2015 have been through all of this, leaving Baghdad and ending in Velkua, a little village of no more than 200 people, between the Finnish woods and the nordic sea. There they started to rebuild their life, with the hope to have a “bad enough background” to be accepted as refugees in the nordic country.
