Documentary about so-called return houses for illegal families in Flanders. Because these houses are not located in closed centres but in ordinary villages, they are internationally considered an example of a humane return policy for rejected asylum seekers. The director follows two return coaches and a few families that are about to be expelled. For the first time, the Belgian government gave permission to film this procedure from up close.
