A Film by Luisa Ricar

Synopsis

Burkina Faso refugee Rachid tries to hide in Brigitte’s flat in the outskirts of Zurich. Thought to have found her true calling, she decides to accommodate him. Even though the unequal power relation leads to tension between Rachid, Brigitte and her ex-husband, she suggests marrying him and giving him the chance to stay legally in Switzerland with her. Surprisingly, her offer gets rejected due to Rachids own plans and her new life-task collapse.
