You’re Welcome

A Film by Rebecca Panian

Synopsis

You want to drink your coffee peacefully but instead you end up in a situation where people start to stir up hatred against refugees – what do you do?
While waiting for her train in a café a young woman (Olivia) suddenly ends up in a situation where the barista chases away a begging girl and starts to stir up hatred against refugees with two customers. Olivia has to decide whether to simply leave the place like another customer does or to take action.
Based on a true story.
