MILAD - MY PLANET...
Jelani married a woman from a different tribe. To avoid getting killed, they fled their country. On foot – and any other way possible – they finally arrived at a river, months later. Some die crossing it; others manage to swim across and enter Europe. But, once they set foot in Greece, the first adjacent European country, they found themselves homeless and socially excluded, without being able to move on or go back. The only solution is to travel illegally to Germany, that’s what the smugglers say. They don’t have enough money for the whole family to pass. Jelani faces this dilemma and has to choose. If one of the children leaves unaccompanied and arrives in Germany sound and safe, it will be able to bring the whole family there. Jelani’s children will have to learn violently what it’s like to discover their own planet or how they can create one from scratch – and whether Germany is the solution or just a new nightmare.
