Unconventional, poetical documentary about a pressing social problem: the dead-end situation of refugees at the European borders. From the fictitious perspective of an old man who has drowned himself during the dangerous crossing and now observes the harsh reality from another dimension, refugees are filmed from up close. The old man's spirit observes people on the street being chased away like dogs, follows a drug-addicted mother and slips inside crowded refugee shelters.
