The confronting story of four refugees: Fathi - escaping death threats from Gaddafi and a key player in the rebellion against his regime; Fasil - a journalist from Ethiopia sentenced to life imprisonment for condemning the fraudulent elections of 2005; Li Zhu - a Falun Gong Buddhist sentenced to prison and beatings for demonstrating against the government and Renuka - a young woman from the supposedly peaceful land of Bhutan but who is one of 100,000 ethnic Nepalese violently expelled. As they face every obstacle to integrate in the Netherlands, they are forced into an ever more hostile climate.
