Jungle

A Film by Colia Vranici

Synopsis

Zaman is a young afghan boy who lives and works as an hairdresser in a salon, in Calais’s migrant camp the ‘Jungle’. Like thousands of others he has fled from war. As the french government announces ‘jungle’s’ imminent destruction, Zaman does not know where to go. Reaching the U.K. seems to be his only option, even if he has to risk his life crossing in the hope of a better life.
