Abstract:This documentary film starts at the Schiphol Airport Detention Centre in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Here we encounter the border between The Netherlands and Nigeria, through Clara, 16 years in the Netherlands. She is expelled, back to her country of origin, Nigeria. From Nigeria the filmmaker follows the route from Nigeria back to the Netherland, a route taken by many migrants. The subsequent borders are the protagonists; Nigeria-Niger-Burkina Faso-Mali-Senegal-Mauritania-Morocco-Spain-France-Belgium-the Netherlands. The borders change; the people, the light, the colours, the temperature, but the influence of power is always there. The anguish, the scary thrill, will posses you - being there - at the border.
