The daily life of refugees (Syrian, Kurdish, Pakistani, Afghani, and other) in the camp of Idomeni. Refugees waiting in queues for food, tea and doctors; waiting to cross the border between Greece and Macedonia. One day, Europe closes its borders for them once and for all. The "residents" of Idomeni decide, in their turn, to occupy the train tracks, blocking the trains that carry goods across the border.

Born in 1982, northern Greece. After studying the history of the Balkans in Greece, she moved to Paris in 2006 where she currently lives most of the time. In France, she did some research for her PhD on the the question of rhythm in cinema. Since 2008, she made several films, mostly on 16mm at different artist-run labs in France (such as L’Etna and L’Abominable) where she is still active as a member.
